Happy Friday the 13th! What can possibly go wrong? I don’t know, but the news sure is interesting this month.
- I think Lampoon made a mountaineering movie about China closing Everest for the Griswold family?
- It might be hard to stock up on expensive, salty, backpacking food sold in oversized plastic pouches. 😉
- What is it like to attempt a thru-hike of The Colorado Trail with 1860s gear? Check out the engaging “West No More” for an interesting take on thru-hiking.
- A concise reason why “Ancestral Puebloan” makes a more preferable term than “Anasazi.”

#Repost @bandeliernps A direct and simple explanation why “Anasazi” is a term no longer used to describe the people who are the ancestors of the Puebloan people. • • • • • • Bandelier National Monument Anasazi to Ancestral Pueblo ? Archeologists and collectors used the term Anasazi to refer to prehistoric Pueblo peoples. It is a Navajo term that means “the Ancient Ones, ancient enemy or enemy ancestors.” Many modern Pueblo people prefer to use the term Ancestral Pueblo people. -Ranger Judy #bandeliernationalmonument #bandelier #nationalparkservice #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #goparks #newmexico #pueblo #ancestralpuebloan
