Pueblo Bonito in all its Splendor


Allow full day 400 miles of driving, mostly through Navajo reservation We will follow "Blue Highways" . We could spend all day photographing Chaco but there is more to see in the area. As time allows we could visit Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness. Pueblo Pintado, a Chacoan outlier. Or Georgia O'Keefe's "Black Place". Any or all are in included in the cost. As we head to Chaco from Albuquerque or Santa Fe we will have time to discuss your photographic needs. We use an all wheel drive vehicle and drive on 90 miles of maintained gravel and dirt roads. I can no longer conduct the walking part of the visit to the ruins. We try to get to the park in time to meet the Ranger guided tour. Usually self guided booklets are available
