At the base of the towering 11,000-foot Boulder Mountain is the site of what used to be one of the most populated Ancestral Puebloan communities west of the Colorado River. Ancestral Puebloans, also known as the Anasazi, occupied this area between 1050 and 1175 A.D. Few places in the United States can compare to the archaeological attraction that is Anasazi State Park Museum, where you can get an up close and personal look into life from almost 1,000 years ago. There are no lodging facilities at Anasazi State Park Museum, but there are hotels in nearby towns and camping at nearby national parks and monuments and in the national forest and BLM land. Part of many Road to Mighty itineraries.
