Chaco Canyon

Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico was a gathering site of ancient Pueblo peoples over a thousand years ago. It is a mysterious place, with highly planned architecture, numerous "great houses," and a wealth of petroglyphs.  The location is extremely remote, but well worth the visit.

Steep cliffs - ready to fall at any time
 We climbed up through a narrow passage in the cliff. From there, we could look down on the structures to gain a better appreciation of the overall architecture.
