I know I’ve been quite slow updating here. But I am (slowly) moving along. Now I’m up to August 19, 2016 at Chaco Canyon. That day I hiked out to the Wijiji ruins.

Let me continue from where I left off describing my trip Out West. I’m now up to August 18, when I hiked the Pueblo Alto trail. I’ve hiked it in every time I’ve been to Chaco Canyon (twice before), and written about it in Pueblo Alto and Getting High.
This time let me emphasize the Chacoan Roads a bit.
One of the reasons I stayed at Chaco Canyon for a fairly long time was to visit some of the sites that I had not visited on previous visits. (Also, I just wanted to take my time and enjoy the whole experience.)
One of the sites I’d never bothered visiting was Una Vida, so I went there on the morning of August 16.
It’s still August 14, since after leaving Lobo Canyon (around 1:00pm) I stopped at La Ventana, which was along the drive back to my campground.
You may recall that I’d seen La Ventana from across the grand curve when I’d hiked the Narrows Rim Trail. This was my chance to get up-close-and-personal.
