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.
