Chaco Canyon Gallery

The evidence of past life at Chaco Culture Canyon extend from the ruins of the ancient Ancestral Puebloan people that built their great houses, roads, and kivas there, to the 75 millioin year old fossils of even more ancient marine life that are found in the rocks and mesas that form the canyon. They were once part of the ocean floor millions of years ago.

The great house ruins of Chaco Canyon have monikers that are as interesting as their history, with names like: Pueblo Bonito, Chetro Ketl, Kin Kletso, Hungo Pavi, and Una Vida.
