The human ability to modify our landscape can be dramatic and even beautiful. A remarkable expression of this process can be seen in the development of extensive agricultural terraces and grid gardens in the hills above the Jemez River Valley on Zia Pueblo lands. A Friends of Archaeology group visited these features back in 2012, and, due to popular demand, we are revisiting this trip. Ulysses Reid of Zia Pueblo will be our guide. He has arranged for a feast day-style lunch and brief walking tours of the pueblo after the hike. The hike is STRENUOUS and requires climbing steep slopes over rugged terrain. This trip will be offered on Father’s Day, and the Pueblo will host an arts and crafts sale that same day.

The cost of the trip is $85 for FOA members, and $95 for non-FOA members. This trip is limited to 20 participants. For more information or to make reservations, call (505) 982-7799, ext. 6 after 7am, starting Tuesday, April 30.
