Our second road trip was to Gila National Forest which is close to Silver City, New Mexico. It is known for its Cliff Dwellings. The road there was so beautiful as we got out of the desert and into the mountains. Driving trough forests and over mountains.. Breath-taking!
As we had a storm just the day before then we couldn’t walk the whole hiking track to see the dwellings as the storm broke down some trees. So we could only walk on the one side of the cliff but at least we saw the main sights – the dwellings. It is actually amazing how people in the old times have build walls in the mountains and lived there. We had a really lovely guide who had a lot of stories about people living there, most of them just assumptions but still amazing.
The way back we made few stops to see the green views of the mountains. Living in Estonia the mountains are the thing I really miss and need.
City of Rocks was actually right on our way to home, so we went to see it. It is not an actual city, it is called like that because of big are full of big rocks. It is best place to have adventures and climb the rocks and have fun! It has multiple camping and bbq areas. Also there’s a lot of Jack Rabbits. Not just a lot, the place is full of them! We had to drive so carefully trying not to hit any of them.
On the way back home we were blessed with an amazing sky colours and a rainbow:
