A trip to Chaparri could be a trip back in time as nothing has changed in this beautiful sacred ground for thousands of years. We know very little of the people that carved small deep bowls into a huge boulder. We were told it was their sacred gathering place in front of the mountain Chaparri. It is a mountain in a wild space, with pumas, bears and many species of birds. It is a place with waterfalls and springs that bring green to the desert. As testament the shamans today still use this place to practice their healing arts. Our guide Esau was truly the best example of someone working in the remote outback doing something he loves. This preserve is a unique experience and it certainly deserves all of the support you give it by paying your entrance fee. It is a community effort that allows this preserve to exist and the income provides them with all their services. We spent 4 hours with our guide who enjoyed teaching us about each medicinal plant we came across and there were many. By going to the reserve you actually step back in time and begin to understand how people really lived several thousand years ago
