Summer Solstice at Chaco Canyon

This 4-day hiking-intensive adventure will explore some of northwestern New Mexico’s most unique natural and cultural landscapes.

We'll be joined by seasoned archeologist, Dr. Lisa Fontz, to help us navigate the special archeological aspects of Chaco and the Greater Chaco Region.
