    Elephant Butte

    by Yaqui Updated Oct 31, 2013

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    This is a wonderful formation. It is high sheer block of sandstone that narrows on one side and tapers along the ridge. The resemblance of being a elephant become better during the afternoon, as the shadows lengthen. When we were here it was late in the afternoon and it stood out right away. Even my boys thought that was cool! Elephant Butte climbs to 6,778 feet (2,065.93 meters) above sea level.

    Valley Drive

    by Africancrab Written Mar 25, 2013
    4 more images

    We drove our car through the valley, at the beginning it was quite scary as the road and terrain in general is rough and steep. Having a 4x4 will help, we did not have a 4 wheel drive, so we were extra careful going down hill. We did not have a guide either(you do not need one), but we had a map of the valley with points of interest.

    It was a beautiful sunny day, the heat was high but no more than 80 degrees. We made stops at three sisters, John Ford's point, which is also the most photographic area, and the Indian Craft market.

    The Three Sisters

    It is obvious why this rock formation was named three sisters. They stick out from one foundation into three different branches. It is nothing shot of interesting that the name was a result of someone's imagination. Nonetheless, the name has stuck and they rocks are fascinating to see.
