john mentioned a visit to chaco canyon a few weeks ago
i'd never heard of it but sounded like there would be a lot to see
got to the visitor center around 1015 or so, driving from petrified forest
decided on doing the longest "backcountry" hike first, setting out around 1100
the trail starts down an old road, passing by kin kletso ruin
then a sandy singletrack leads to casa chiquita
we checked both of those out and soon came to the petroglyph trail, which parallels the main trail
lots of interesting stuff to see along here and fun to spot the glyphs
another mile of flat led to chaco wash, which we crossed and headed up to the famed supernova pictograph
an interesting ascent to the top of a mesa where penasco pueblo is located
explored this great house and took plenty of photos, which convey the scale of these ruins better than words
retraced our steps, but taking a more direct route across the wash
nice hike to a cool destination with plenty to see along the way
