From our meandering vacation in 2017 through New Mexico and into Colorado, we came across the Chimney Rock National Monument. While we didn’t stop to explore, I wished we had. We meandered by it again last week, but had an appointment so once again, we didn’t stop. So, this national monument goes back on the list of must travel to places. After returning home from the first time we saw it from the highway, I did a little research and found that the national monument is an archaeological find that preserves 200 ancient homes and ceremonial building, some of which have been excavated. Chimney Rock sits at 7,000 feet above sea level.
This was a drive-by shot after we had been to Mesa Verde in 2017. What I didn’t realize at the time is how many dust particles were on my camera sensor. I cleaned a lot off, but not all as you can see in this photo.
I’m just now starting to work on the 2019 trip from last week. Hope to post a few in the coming days.
