If you are in the area to visit ruins take the time to visit. A large complex with lots to experience. We were staying in the Mesa Verde Park and made the trip and really glad we did.

If you have been to Chaco...this was the next step in the progression of the Anasazi! No wonder...more water with the Animas running next to the ruin and the fertile soil for farming! Really interesting and quite beautiful...not to be missed!

This is a hidden gem in Aztec, New Mexico. The ruins are beautifully preserved, with walking paths right near each house. You can walk into some of the ruins, and it is amazing to see so close!!
