This site is a must see when visiting Chaco Canyon. Best times to visit are in early spring or fall when it is much cooler,

The site is amazing and the ranger does not have the time to thoroughly explain the site in terms of paleoastronomy. There were 45 people on our tour...a bit unwieldy...but worth it.
It would be a good idea to watch the Robert Redford film prior to going on the tour.

This huge site allows you access to peruse each area within it and learn about kivas as well as accommodations. It is superb and not overly visited so plan on spending time here.

Seeing Pueblo Bonito at long last held special meaning for Colorado Jim and me. We’ve been keenly interested in Ancestral Puebloan culture ever since we toured Mesa Verde National Park and the Lion Canyon area of the adjacent Ute Mountain Ute Indian Reservation during our first buddy trip back in 2009. On subsequent trips to the southwest we’ve visited cliff dwellings and related ruins at Hovenweep National Monument, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, and several other sites.

We’d been eager to have a look at Chaco Canyon and its Bonito Pueblo complex ever since learning that this place might very well have functioned for several centuries as the trade, ceremonial, and administrative capital of the Four Corners area of the Ancestral Puebloan realm. Now that we’ve seen the Great House ruins, it’s easy to understand why scientists have been so fascinated with the distinctive architecture and spectacular character of these ancient public and ceremonial buildings. Very high in Wow! Factor, and definitely recommended.

Taking the Park Ranger tour was well worth it. First - it's free! And you get a wealth of information about the dwelling and the known history of the area!
