Anasazi Heritage Center - BLM - Dolores, CO
Anasazi Heritage Center
BLM - Dolores, CO
We visited the Center this morning, after staying overnight in nearby Cortez. Here we are just arriving.
The building was very nice; over looks the McPhee Reservoir.
This center focuses on the Anasazi in the 4 corners area, the Northern San Juan, in this case.
The educational displays are very up to date and most interesting; Here is one through the ages.
Another had drawers you pull out for more information.
There are computer stations and video displays around the area. Here as long view.
Note in the foreground right, you are looking down into a replica of a pit-house. See it:
Here Nancy is looking at a display about an archeological dig.
We were fascinated by the "Small pots" display.
We really enjoyed our brief visit; might stop by again sometime.
We went up through Moab - we had not been there before. It was 92 degrees... not pleasant. We went on up to Green River, expecting to stay the night. But, we ended up getting there real early... and realized it was only about to two hours to Teasdale - so we cancelled the motel and came on in. Larry is here; Annette will be back from Seattle late tonight.
Here is a photo off the back deck late this afternoon:
It was a very nice day! ;-)
