This unique and mysterious New Mexico landscape influenced the trails, petroglyphs, and homesteads of early inhabitants, and remains sacred to neighboring Indian tribes today.

In Spanish malpais means bad country, and this is indeed a harsh environment in which to survive. The jumbled, volcanic badlands of northeastern New Mexico cover 590 square miles, an area half the size of Rhode Island. Much of this rugged landscape is preserved within the national monument. Photos by George H. H. Huey.
