Chaco Canyon is a very remote archaeological site. In 1987, it was designated a World Heritage Site. It is found in northeastern New Mexico. The turn for the park is on US 550, three miles south of Nageezi. Nageezi is a post office, and the nearest gasoline is in Bloomfield about fifty five miles from the park. Follow the signs, as the park is 21 miles from Nageezi, and at least nine miles of it is dirt road. None of the other roads to the park are passable unless you have four-wheel drive. This is an extremely important archaeological site and of the United States' very first advanced civilizations. Despite the difficulty getting here, if you are interested in ancient civilizations and their origins then this is you place. There are definitely enough restored ruins to make the trip worthwhile.
