Chaco Culture: Pueblo Arroyo, Pueblo Bonito

The Pueblo Bonito rose four or five stories and most likely housed 1,200 people and was built in phases from around 850 to 1150 ADVERTISEMENT. The Chaco Canyon was the center of a thriving culture, and the Chacao Culture National Historic Park, which maintains the remains of the ancient ChACO culture along with the ruins of Hungo Pavi, is located about midway between Farmington and Albuquerque. The main attraction of the park are the remarkable sandstone homes, but Pueblo Bonito as the center of the ancient world is a need to - see for yourself. Due to the desert - like the environment - the area is best seen in late summer season and early fall, throughout the hottest time of the year and in winter season. The gorge is an important place for the culture of the forefathers of Pueblik and consists of a variety of petroglyphs which are marked on its walls.Chaco Culture: Pueblo Arroyo, Pueblo Bonito 5760816159631340696.jpg There is a petroglyphic path that leads from the top of Gallo Wash to the bottom of the canyon. Finally, among the petroleum types on Gallos Wash are a couple of small niches and houses that were populated in between 1150 and 1200 AD. It is believed that the architectural style embedded in the rock walls was affected by the populations of the north such as Mesa Verde. The kivas are keyholes - shaped and circular, showing a connection to the northern websites where they prevailed, and to Pueblik culture in general.

Fajada Space lies south of Mesa and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Casa Rinconada Chaco Canyon. Fajadas Space is located at the southern end of Kivi 5, a keyhole - like KIVA of the Pueblik culture in Kiva 5. The instructional trail begins at the parking lot of Casa Rinconada (see direction below), where there is a car park with a sign for the Fajada Space Interpretive Path. Those with restricted time needs to simply take the Tsin Kletsin Trail, which starts and climbs south of Mesa at marker 10 in CasA. I prefer to walk the loop by going up the Tesa to the South Gap and after that checking out Ts in Kletin.

The Secret Of Chaco Canyon's Sun Dagger

In the middle of ancient Anasazi - called Chaco Canyon - increases an imposing natural structure called Fajada Butte. On a narrow rocky outcrop at the top of this mountain is a spiritual site of the native people, which received the name "Sun Dagger" and revealed the changing seasons to the astronomers of An asanasazi countless years ago. Although the canyon was abandoned more than 700 years ago for unknown reasons, the tricks of the dagger stay surprise to only a few. It inconspicuously marked the course of the seasons for many centuries, but lasted just 10 years before its discovery and was lost forever.
