The Bandelier trip provides visitors with a wonderful taste of the interesting landscapes and rich cultural and natural history of northern New Mexico. Departing Santa Fe by vehicle we descend a bit in elevation and cross the Rio Grande valley with excellent views of the southern end of the Rocky Mountains. We then climb up the side of a huge Super Volcano, the Jemez, where we visit Bandelier National Monument, a site set aside to protect the cliff dwellings that were home to the ancestors of present day Pueblo Indians. Guides will share information en route & make stops for photos & discussion. Once at Bandelier, we will split into smaller groups to walk the trail to visit the cliff dwellings, remnants of an early village and petroglyphs (rock art carvings). There will also be time to visit the National Park Service visitor center and museum which are housed in historic buildings constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
