Check out the other reviews for an excellent and accurate summary of Salmon Ruins, which I found worthwhile, interesting and served to whet my appetite for the "Journey Into the Past" tour of Chaco Canyon that we booked for the next day. Being the week of Spring Break I found it surprising that there were tour dates available. I figured that this this was an optimal time to visit and avoid the high desert heat of summer. Tori, a resident archeologist, was our guide and we made a great day of it. She answered questions with ease, shared her own professional takes on prevailing theories, and expanded on my tentative understandings of the history of the area. Tori has a great sense of humor, is very knowledgable and, at the same time, follows your interests. I wholly recommend a tour with the company and Tori to enrich the experience.
