Western New Mexico
Chaco Canyon is a wonderful location that offers a great opportunity to visit one of the largest ancestral Puebloan ruins in the American Southwest. The Chaco Culture National Historical Park is located in northwestern New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Farmington, and is home to the massive Pueblo Bonito ruins which are believed to have been inhabited between AD 828 and AD 1126.
Pueblo Bonito once stood four stories tall and housed up to 750 rooms. It was the major center of culture for the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (Chacoans). The above picture is taken in one of the front rooms in the Pueblo Bonito complex.
