Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) is proud to present the new Stories at Sunset Program at Chimney Rock National Monument on Tuesday, July 31st.  At this family-friendly event, guests gather at the Great Kiva as sunset approaches to enjoy Native American stories told by tribal storytellers Audulia Davis and her brother Bryan Vigil.   After the story telling, guests return to the upper parking lot to enjoy the sunset.

Reservations are encouraged for this program as space is limited.  Walk-ins are accommodated if space is available.  Bring a blanket or camp chair for comfort, a light jacket and a flashlight to light your way back to your vehicle after sunset.
