Take an easy hike from camp and visit a 1500 year old Chacoan dwelling, or take a more difficult hike to the top of the mesa and visit an ancient Chacoan Signal Fire used to communicate with Chaco Canyon.

The vibe at Hound Dog Homestead... The Cabin!
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We loved our stay at the homestead cabin! It's remote but still accessible and the location is beautiful. The cabin and land jut up against a mesa and BLM so there is a lot to explore/hike. The cabin itself is truly amazing. It's off the grid (with a generator) and looks out over the landscape. It almost felt like being in a tree house or fire watch tower. We liked how basic but functional the cabin was and the deck was perfect for stargazing The best part of our stay was how responsive and accommodating Brett was. He provided lots of recommendations for things to do in the area and gave us plenty of peace and quiet but was only a short distance away if we needed him. This is exactly the kind of place I've been looking for in New Mexico and would definitely recommend.
