Greetings from Chaco Culture National Historical Park

In April & May of 2013 we travelled from Big Bend Nat Park to Chaco Canyon stopping at Guadalupe Montains Nat Park,& Bandelier on the way! We saw the essence of the west, experienced American history & had a great time camping & hiking!

Sincerely,

Chaco Culture National Historical Park

Chaco Culture National Historical Park preserves five Chacoan "great houses" where people from various clans congregated to trade goods, share ideas and celebrate events a thousand years ago. The structures demonstrate the high skill of the Chacoan people, with sophisticated architecture and construction methods. Explore the nine-mile park road and backcountry trails by day; after dark, the park's night sky program offers the chance to view the stars from this sacred and special place.

State(s): New Mexico

Established: 1907
