Enjoy beautiful skies over the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument with #mypubliclandsroadtrip.  

The Canyons of the Ancients National Monument in Colorado contains some of the highest densities of archaeological sites in North America, with pueblos from around 1200 A.D. Stop first at the Anasazi Heritage Center (monument headquarters), Southwest Colorado’s premier archaeological museum of the Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) and other Native cultures of the Four Corners region. A short hike from the Anasazi Heritage Center leads to the Escalante Pueblo and a dramatic view of the surrounding Colorado and Utah landscapes.
