Jesse and I visited Chaco Culture National Historical Park on 30 Sept 2013.

During bad weather the road can be pretty muddy. Not on this day though... (Photo: Jesse H.)
The first small pueblo heading in.

I love walking through these rooms and looking at the rock work.
There are a lot of kivas.

Really large kivas too.

Some of the hundreds of petroglyphs.
This is the notch you climb to get to the mesa above.

Great country to hike through.

More water was available than I expected.
Watch that step!
Petrified coral I think.
Lots of petrified sea creatures.
