Bandelier National Park: a journey to the ancient Anasazi ruins of a time gone by. On this tour you will explore the cave dwellings and climb numerous ladders to peek into their homes on the sunny side of Frijoles Canyon. The Pueblo people are descendants of hunters and gatherers who came into the region over 10,000 years ago. “Anasazi” is a Navajo term referring to the ancestors of Pueblo people before the coming of the Spanish. They were farmers who grew maize (corn), beans and squash. Cotton was cultivated and woven into garments. The people made winter blankets ingeniously woven of yucca-fiber string twisted with turkey feathers or strips of rabbit skin. They fashioned tools from animal, bones, wood and local stones such as obsidian and basalt.

There is a sense of solitude at Bandelier National Park that is refreshing and relaxing. Enjoy your day exploring with a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
