Introduction

Where Is It?

Chaco is located way out in the middle of New Mexico hidden from the modern world where the nearest town is 71 miles away and the only bathroom is at the visitors center so if you can't hold it for long... Beware!

What Wildlife Is There?

Chaco has a ton of wildlife. During the day there are rabbits, prairie dogs, and of course the slithering rattlesnake. At night bats and howling coyotes come out of hiding.

Chaco Boring?

If there's one place that's boring it not Chaco. In Chaco you can go to Pueblo Bonito which was at least four stories high and had at least 600 rooms or Chetro Ketl known as Rain Pueblo which was four stories tall and had 500 rooms. These are all sites at Chaco.
