Trail of the Ancients GeoTourism Guide Map:

Other landscapes feature grasslands or forests but in the Four Corners of New MExico the Trail of the Ancients looks at what might be termed naked land. The Earth’s crust is exposed and what remains is sculptures always different and precise in their forms. It was the sea that is responsible for some, the melting glaciers, volcanoes and erosion. The landscape may seem severe but one has the full sky, larger than the ocean that one can see at any given moment. Must see places sandstone Native American Peoples have lived in thsi landscape form many years, they adapted to the climate and loved the land and all its fragile beauty.

Silver River Adobe Inn Bed and Breakfast

Rustic elegance awaits you at the Silver River Adobe Inn Bed and Breakfast which was built in the traditional architecture of northern New Mexico and offers a view from each room of the San Juan River. Just up stream the Animas River joins the San Juan River and on the corner of our property is the confluence with the La Plata River, hence the local name of Totah, the meeting place of three rivers. The San Juan River holds 50% of New Mexico’s surface flowing water, rather a miracle for this high desert plateau. Many guests exclaim their delight seeing so much water after hiking and driving through this portion of the American Southwest, called Indian Country by the early Santa Fe Railroad. The Anasazi Ruins of Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Aztec Ruins and Mesa Verde bring tourists from all over the world to the Four Corners. The splendid geology left to us of Shiprock, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, and Canyon lands has been used time and again. Take home a taste of the beauty of our sun and geology.
