Camel Rock In New Mexico

Camel Rock In New Mexico


Camel Rock In New Mexico

Driving South to Albuquerque from Santa Fe on I-25 in New Mexico across from the Camel Rock Casino you will see the naturally formed and distinctive Camel Rock.  We’ve taken many photo’s of the Camel Rock and thought it was quite fitting for Hump Day.

John - I have heard of this but have never seen it! Thanks for sharing. Now I've got to see it in person some day. Happy "hump day" to you!

Good morning John,  "Love it" , I'm sure if you hadn't taken that photo, I would never have seen that rock formtion.  That's the thing about the United States.  There is so much to see.  Why would you want to go anywhere else?

Hi John.

The last time I went through there I did get a shot. But it was a long time ago.

I never even got to stop by the casino either.

Have a great day in the Duke City.

Best, Clint McKie

It IS hump day although I often think for real estate agents hump day is Thursday since we work so hard most Saturdays.

Posted by Steve and Jan Bachman, Realtors - Northern Virginia (RE/MAX Gateway, Reston, Herndon, Ashburn, Sterling, Fairfax ) almost 6 years ago

Wow John,  What a great shot of this camel, it is amazing at what people can make out of some things by just looking around.

Hello friends and thanks for dropping by and checking out the NM Camel Rock.  When driving up or down I-25 there is no way you're going to miss this natural rock formation.  Quiet impressive and amazing that Mother Nature has given us the Camel Rock.

I hope each of you have enjoyed a good and productive day in and out of work.  You are appreciated and I hope to see you again quiet soon.
