I do not know of any personally, but the people at Salmon Ruins take tours that are lead by archaeologists. http://www.chacotours.org/ http://www.salmonruins.com/

We are visiting Chaco National Park Sept 17-18.

We will be driving up from Santa Fe to Farmington NM for it was suggested that it would be best

to drive from Farmington to Chaco Park. We are looking for a private tour guide or signing up with another tour that is going to Chaco Park.

I have contacted Salmon Ruins out of Bloomfield NM but they are booked for those dates. Does anyone know of a private individual that is versed in the Anasazi history that does private tours.

Thank You jeremic8@yahoo.com

rcpenny; are you planning on camping in the park? You are showing two days there, so was curious. There are no lodging facilities near Chaco, the closest would be Bloomfield/Aztec or Cuba. The drive from these locations would be quite a distance in and out.

And, if you have a rental car, you are not allowed to drive off paved roads; the last 20 miles in to the park is dirt/gravel.
