Of the dozen or so badland regions of the San Juan Basin of northwest New Mexico, the Bisti Wilderness
contains the most accessible and most varied collection of eroded sedimentary formations, togather with large amounts of petrified wood. The badlands are reached from a short track on the east side of Hwy 371, along which are various good locations for quiet, free, primitive camping. The most interesting area is 3 by 2 miles in extent, and the many branched ravines and little hills take a long time to explore fully, so several days could be spent here.
