Friday, November 18th, 2016 at 6:11 pm

In the high desert of northwestern New Mexico, Chaco Canyon’s ruins stand as one of the great historic sites of the ancient world. A seemingly unlikely place for a major center of Pueblo culture to take root and flourish, visitors can revel in centuries of history and culture while taking in one of New Mexico’s most magnificent landscapes. Marvel at the monumental scale of ancient architecture, the complexity of the community life evidenced in Chaco’s artifacts, and hike the canyons walls to get a bird’s eye perspective of the ruins. Keep your eyes peeled for evidence of all that has happened here and watch the world turn back in time as wild elk walk the horizon.
