The 45,000 acre Bisti Wilderness is located in northwestern New Mexico about 40 miles south of the town of Farmington. This remote colorful landscape of eroded badlands contains numerous hoodoos, pinnacles and spires. Dinosaur fossils and petrified wood logs can also be found here. The unusual rock formations at Bisti are composed of interbedded sandstones, shales, mudstones and coal which erode at different rates resulting in the alien-like topography. Bisti has no established trails and using GPS is recommended.

BISTI/DE-NA-ZIN WILDERNESS - NEW MEXICO
Giant cracked eggs with embryonic alien life forms emerging from the shells. Located in northwest New Mexico the Bisti badlands are a wonder to explore and photograph. There are no trails so one is free to wander around the 45,000-acre wilderness which is managed by the federal BLM. GPS is recommended. The area has hoodoos, spires, caprocks and petrified logs. Dinosaur fossils can also be found in the badlands. Bisti translates from Navajo as "a large area of shale hills".
