Hike in to visit one of Southwest Colorado’s most photographed and celebrated pueblos! This moderately sized community, complete with tower and rock art, exemplifies gathering places of the Pueblo III time period. The Ancestral Pueblo people aggregated into large communities with public architecture that included towers, D-shaped structures, great kivas, and more. This talus village displays some of these features, but researchers have not determined its complete time span of existence. (This tour dovetails nicely with Tour # 3 at a 10% discount!)
