Magnificent and surprising views of New Mexico Badlands. Angel Peak pictures require a zoom lens - so I think.

For free its a good spot. Very few level spots for tents. Pretty scenery. But!!!!! Its an active drilling area, so smell of petroleum and sounds of venting and drilling all night long. The oil wells and roads definitely detract from the view.

The peak is deteriorating at a rapid pace it used to look like a kneeling angel complete with wings it has lost its wings and shrunk down due to erosion. Still a neat area to adventure around.

Nice vistas and a easy and quick ride/hike to all of them. You need to be ready for the turn off of US 550 as the signage doesn't give you much advance notification, particularly as the traffic is traveling at 70+ mph.
