Wild elk browsing in Chaco Canyon


Elk browsing in Chaco Canyon

One morning at daybreak in Chaco Canyon, I awoke to the sound of what I thought was a car horn, only to find out it was a bugling elk nearby, echoing off the canyon walls. The days are often clear, and the nights are inky black with stars strewn across the dome of the sky. Chaco Canyon is a World Heritage Site, and located in a remote part of New Mexico, with very little light pollution. The night sky is often clear and sprayed with stars, against an inky black background. The daytime sky is vivid blue on clear days, and filled with dramatic towering clouds on others.
