Tuesday, I drove north out of Gallup to Chaco Canyon, World Heritage site and one of the most significant pre-Columbian sites in North America. Its buildings were the largest in The United States until the 19th Century.

Thanks to the bitter cold, I had the entire park almost to myself. The only drawback was that I had to keep moving. I would like to have sat and contemplated history and progress and the loss of civilizations, but I had to keep moving.

I hiked to the top of the mesa where the previous view was shot of New Alto ruin, as well as the aerial photo of Kin Kletso ruin. I explored in and around all the ruins on the main loop, finding, to my delight, many opportunities to take pictures through openings, which I love to do.
