Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument remains closed because of COVID-19.

The road to the monument runs through Cochiti Pueblo and access is currently limited to tribal members only to reduce COVID exposure.

Tent Rocks was designated a national monument by President Bill Clinton in 2001.

The Bureau of Land Management is reportedly working with the pueblo on a reopening plan, which will address the longstanding issues of over-visitation, long wait times, staffing needs and resource protection.

KOB 4 wanted to chat with someone from BLM about that plan going forward, and officials said they will get back to us next week.
