Never saw him have any trouble. You should see him flog that bike too. I've been there, trying to keep up. A story will follow
He brought the tarp!!!! Not the guy with the truck.

This just in....... Columbus didn't discover the New World. He wasn't even the first white guy.




The folks who built the buildings here did so in approximately the same time frame as Leif Ericson was landing in Newfoundland.


For more info about the Chaco Culture click here.



Archaeology has been a life long interest for me and JaxWife. We met at an Archaeological Field School.


This "little" mesa was the sentinel to the south.


There are trails and a driving tour.























Just for a little perspective, there is a woman very close to the middle of this photo:
















I took some photos of walls to later look over to see if I captured any petroglyphs. This is the only one I got.... maybe a little more modern than I had been looking for...
A friggin billboard from 1887!!!!!




Next up is the awful road out of the Canyon.....Breaking down, Crappy batteries and good times.

Mrs. SoPa and I are lovin' your RR Jack, you were only a short distance from one of our favorite places, Shiprock Peak, located on Navajo Nation land in northwest NM, it rises out of the desert 1,583 feet, 7,177 feet above sea level, were you close enough to see it to the west?

There is a video on YouTube titled "Shiprock" that was posted by dontbringmedown1900 that will give you a good idea as to why the Navajo people consider this a scared place!

Wow Jack, that Chaco canyon place looks sweet; mental reminder to check that place out next time I'm in the area!

Reminds me a little of the pictures I've seen of Machu Pichu with all the stacked stone work. It's amazing to me the structures that past civilizations have built in what appear to me to be some of the most remote areas, and with none of the modern tools that we have today. Then again, I guess manual labor was cheap back then!?

Thanks man!!!!
If you can see Shiprock Peak from where I was, I had my eyes on it, but had no idea what it was.
There are so many sublime/special places out there that you get overwhelmed.

Thanks DC! Yeh it was pretty clear that they were going for cave like structures.

Chaco is awfully cool but the coolest Pueblo site (imo) is the cliffs of Mesa Verde The wiki here>
Though Machu Pichu is almost 8000' above sea level, where working would be a bear, Chaco Canyon is between 6000 and 6500'. No oxygen bonanza by any means.


I'll be back in a bit to continue the story.
