Awesome hike through Chaco canyon, pretty much flat along Chaco Wash with all the elevation gain to the mesa and ruins. No shade that we could find so July or August could be brutal. We did a side trip to the petroglyphs which were really great. The Super Nova panel was tops on my list...perfectly preserved with the exception of the canyon swallow nests under the alcove.

I loved Penasco Blanco. The ruins are "as they are" and not extensively excavated or recreated. There is a simple peace as I wandered through this site...that's the best way I can describe the vibes.

The views are outstanding.

Loved it!
