Camel Rock, New Mexico

Summary Author: Rick Stankiewicz
Featured above is Camel Rock, New Mexico. Found 10 miles (16 km)
north of Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the foothills of the Sangre de
Cristo Mountains (along U.S. Highway #285), this obscure, natural
sandstone formation, to many, resembles a camel resting in the
desert. It’s easily visible from the highway, but there’s a small
pull-off if you wish to have a closer look -- now protected by a wire
fence to avoid vandalism. No matter how you look at it, this
long-necked, flat-headed “ dromedary” certainly is true to its name.
Photo taken on October 6, 2013.
Photo details: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi camera; ISO 200; f/10;
1/200^th second exposure; 28mm (cropped).
