July 25 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 am
Attendees rise early and watch the sun rise from two special places at Chimney Rock. First, a site named the Sun Tower (not on the daily walking tour) offers one vantage point to watch the sunrise over a notch in the San Juan Mountains. Move to the Stone Circle to see the sun rise again over the Great House Pueblo’s north wall. The volunteer program leader describes several alignments at Chimney Rock and their possible importance to ancient residents. These are reservations-only programs, not suitable for children under 8. The fee is $15.00 and is considered a non-refundable donation. A booking fee applies to each ticket purchased online or through the call center. Making a reservation through the call center or website is the only way to guarantee a spot on this tour.
