About this Blog

This blog gives me a place to talk about two topics that may seem unrelated to some: Chaco Canyon and wilderness.

Chaco Canyon, in northwest New Mexico, was the pinnacle of Anasazi culture about 900 years ago. Today, it is a desolate, indeed wild, canyon full of beautiful ruins of still great architecture.

Most of us don’t think of buildings when we think of wilderness. However, the Canyon at Chaco touches me in much the same way a great mountain or waterfall does. I dearly love a long vista and getting out on a trail.

So, these two topics collide in my life and mind. peace, mjh
