Hey Jim,

I added the From and To dates into the title of the thread.

Usually we try to include whether the trip is 2-wheel drive, 4x4 Easy, 4x4 Moderate or 4x4 Difficult accesible into the title too. That way folks can see if it's something they want to go on...

Let me know if you want any help with the thread, we're here to help out!

Diane

Everyone should go to Chaco Canyon at least once, of course once that happens the second time will be assured. My wife and I have gone 3 times thus far and plan to return. There is more then just the what you will see in the canyon itself, there are hikes to nearby outliers and other outliers that have potentially interesting drives to and from depending on the weather. If the roads are washed out by the rains the trek can be a serious undertaking to the outliers. My wife and I ventured forth alone in the muddy washed out roads of that area against our own better judgement. If the rains come, and September is a good month for rain in that area it will be all the better in my opinion, as they are often short lived and bring out all the wild life and the colors.

September is the best month for Chaco Canyon, everything is green and all the blossoms are out, temperatures are perfect, and the wildlife is still out and about.

You could spend 7 days at this one area easily and still have more to explore some other day.

Nearby places are the Bisti Badlands and Angels Peak, great subjects for photographers.

I have never been to Ute Mountain Park ruins but I have been to the nearby Canyon of the Ancients and Hovenweep.

The people who go on this trip who have never been will find themselves returning.
