Sunrise over Chaco Canyon

The sun sets on an ancient culture at Chaco Canyon

Sure, it sounds poetic, but it's hard not to feel that way when you're walking in the footsteps -and bedrooms of an ancient people. Of course, the ancient culture didn't really disappear when the sun set. After a prolonged drought, they migrated to new areas and became the Zuni, the Hopi, the Pueblo, and other "new" tribal cultures of the region who still follow many of the ways of their ancestors.
