We love camping in Chaco! It is about a 2 hour drive from home and usually a little warmer than our neck of the woods so it is a great spring or fall camping trip. It is truly a magnificent area and culturally rich with many ruins and a great visitors center.
This was MQ’s first time and he loved it, rain and all! He spent hours digging in the sand, hiked on his own up to the mesa (the trail to the Pueblo Alto Complex), and saw his first desert mouse snacking on crumbs at the campsite.
