8 Architectural Marvels Inspired by the Summer Solstice
Home to a thriving Pueblo culture between the years 850 and 1250, the sandstone buildings of Chaco Canyon were designed to align with the movement of the sun, moon, and stars. Multiple hiking trails through the now–National Historic Park make for fascinating exploration, and on summer solstice you can join rangers inside the great kiva Casa Rinconada to observe the light of the sunrise as it marks solstice. Chaco Canyon is a day trip from Albuquerque (a three-and-a-half-hour drive), so visitors often spend the night at that city’s Hotel Chaco, designed by Gensler. The architects spent a few nights camping in Chaco Canyon in order to study its architectural elements, colors, and light patterns, and then aligned the hotel itself to the movement of the sun and moon.

Glamping Slips Into the Mainstream
To celebrate the spring and fall equinox, Hotel Chaco in Albuquerque, N.M., and the tour operator Heritage Inspirations are offering two-day trips to the Pueblo ruins at Chaco Canyon National Historic Park. After a five-course dinner, stargazing and sleeping in furnished tents, guests rise to track the sunrise, which aligns with the east-west orientation of the astronomically influenced sandstone-and-timber buildings. The next tour departs Sept. 22 ($750), though private tours are also available.
