4-day Tracking the Anasazi Tour


Track the Chacoan Anasazi’s northward migration in incomparable settings. You’ll capture ground views of the largest great houses – Pueblo Bonito, Chetro Ketl, Pueblo Del Arroyo and Casa Chiquita, plus Casa Rinconada and the 1054 nova pictograph.

On day two, walk through Chaco’s South Gap and ascend South Mesa. The trail winds gradually towards Kin Klizhin, a rare Great House ruin south of Chaco Wash. Finish with a high view of Casa Rinconada’s Great Kiva aiming north to Pueblo Bonito and Pueblo New Alto.

On day three, discover keywords and a file structure in Lightroom that lets you actually find your pictures again. Get pro editing techniques for maximum impact with selective contrast, color, and perspective enhancements. In the later afternoon we’ll explore Twin Angels outlier near Bloomfield.

The fourth day finds us at Salmon Ruin in the morning. I’ll offer a mid-day critique of your best pictures. Then explore Aztec Ruin’s restored Great Kiva in the afternoon.

Our base of operations will be the Best Western Territorial Inn & Suites in Bloomfield, NM.

Can’t make a scheduled photo tour? Ask about a tour on your schedule. I can accommodate private tours with at least two participants. I’ll need at least a month’s advanced notice for Chaco Canyon and Tracking the Anasazi tours, and two weeks for everything else. Just call me at (408) 483-3782 to set up your private tour.

Because of extra planning and attention, private tour cost is 15% more than a scheduled tour, and subject to my availability.
