The Drive from Grants, New Mexico over to the Indian ruins at Chaco Canyon was a pretty long one. The website cautioned against relying on a GPS to find the place, as I guess it’s so ludicrously far out in the boonies that even satellites can’t find it. From their website:
“Warning: Some of the local roads recommended by map publishers and services using GPS devised to access Chaco are unsafe for passenger cars. Please use our written directions below to avoid getting lost or stuck.”
So I let their mediocre grammar slide, and printed out this here map. I marked our starting point and our destination on there for you.
I didn’t figure it’d be too hard to find; the drive took me through the little towns of White Horse and Seven Lakes, so I figured I’d have some landmarks, and maybe even a gas station or two. Boy, I figured wrong.
20 or so miles down this here dirt road I finally found the place. If it seems like I’m dragging my feet on showing you actual pictures of actual Chaco Canyon, well, I am. I took well over 1,000 pictures on this particular day, and sorting them has proved to be a rather daunting little chore. But I’m getting there. I assure you, you won’t have to hold your proverbial horses too much longer.
