21 Jul Caja del Rio and Diablo Canyon Guided Hike, A Journey Through Time
Tour Description: Your guided hike begins with a walk through the dramatic Diablo Canyon. Just outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, within O’ga Pogeh and Cochiti Pueblo territories is a place of cosmic connection and cultural convergence: The Caja del Rio. From dramatic geologic features and diverse wildlife, to millennia-old petroglyphs and Pueblo cultural resources, to traditional Spanish land grant communities, to the original path of the modern day Route 66, the Caja del Rio plateau tells the story of human journey in this part of the world.
This sacred plateau, situated between the Rio Grande and Santa Fe Rivers, connects us to the past, the future, each other, and ourselves. It’s a continuum of human journey within and alongside the natural world.
