Ascent Trip Report

Added a visit to the Tsankawi Mesa area on a day trip to Bandelier while driving back to Albuquerque from Taos. Spent maybe an hour completing the loop trail over the top of and around the south side of the mesa. Some visible remnants of old structures scattered around the top of the mesa, and a large array of cliff dwellings and petroglyphs along the south side. Worth the stop for the expansive views and interesting history without the crowds of the main area of the National Monument.
