Hi y'all. Just wanted to share a few pics of my recent visit to Chaco Culture. My family has been in town & we have been doing all the touristy things to do in Santa Fe... walk the plaza, go out for local cuisine, visit Taos, Chimayo, Tent Rocks & so forth. We had a really nice visit, & kept quite busy! After Mom & gram's left, my nephew stayed with me another 4 days and we embarked on a more strenuous routine- hiking high in the local mountains, & a long days drive out to Chaco to hike & explore. If you have never been, I highly recommend it. It was my second visit there, and I'll certainly visit again in the future- so much to see & experience,it is impossible to take it all in in one day! I took a ton of photos, but tried to narrow it down to just a few of my favorites to share.
(click on any photo for greater detail~ the top 2 are my faves.)

Chaco is a most amazing place~ I wouldn't do it justice by trying tell you all about it,
so for lots of great info~ click on the National Park website here:
There are wonderful links on the history & people of Chaco Culture, and anything you may need to know about planning a visit.
(just a side note~ I was completely "blog-free" during my family's visit... and I have to admit, I found it quite refreshing! I'll still be posting here & there, but I imagine it will be a bit less with my now hectic work schedule & upcoming life events. though fun, blogging does tend to take up a fair amount of time, does it not? i'll still visit when I can, though likely not as often. wishing you all a wonderful summer!)
