This is Ancient Voices, a digital audio tour of Southwestern Colorado’s antiquities, a presentation by Mesa Verde Country. This trip will begin in Cortez, Colorado spending some time exploring the visitor services, historic and prehistoric treasures of this uniquely southwestern town. We’ll then journey westward discovering the archaeological, geologic, agricultural, and natural wonders of McElmo Canyon and the southern portions of the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, including Rock Canyon and the lower reaches of Sand Canyon. Ultimately we’ll view a historic trading post on the Utah/Colorado border before making our way to Hovenweep National Monument. This audio tour is versatile, designed to accompany you as you journey at your own pace among the natural and manmade wonders, and when practical, driving and walking directions are provided.
