The picture stretched across the top of my web site was taken at Chaco Canyon, a remote archaeological site in northwest New Mexico. These pictures were taken in the Fall of 1995.

Chaco Canyon is perhaps the most impresive archaeological site in the southwest United States. Like many of the ancient civiliations of the greater southwest, archaeologists struggle to determine why such places were deserted. Surrounded by a network of roads which ties it into the greater southwest region, an impressive showing of technology for its time, and some of the largest structures ever found, it is a unique site. You can visit the National Park Service website to learn more about the canyon.
