Virtual Field Trip- Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

My daughter has been studying "landforms"in her 3rd grade class.  I have been lucky enough to be working in Albuquerque, NM and had the opportunity to take a hike in an amazing National Park. While I can't bring my daughter to work with me...I thought this would be  a great time to bring what I am learning back to her class virtually.  The tent rocks and slot canyon at Kahsa-Katuwe Tent Rocks Memorial are layers of volcanic rock and ash deposited by a volcanic explosion of the Jemez volcanic field. Over time, weathering and erosion has created amazing canyons and tent rocks. I was absolutely in awe of the geography and thought her class would benefit from this virtual field trip.
