Vacation Destination: New Mexico's Chaco Canyon

Chaco Canyon , a National Historic Park in Nageezi New Mexico, was the hub of the Southwest for the entire Native Anazazi culture from 900 to 1130 AD. Roads lead out in all directions and you must still travel several miles of dirt roads to see these extensive well preserved ruins.  I was so amazed that 1000 year old timbers supporting doorways were still intact because of the hot and dry weather. Here are a few of my pictures taken in May 2009.  Take yourself away to a different world. It is worth the trip!
