A limited number of tickets are available for the guided tour to Bandelier National Monument on Wednesday, May 10. Bandelier has maintained trails through a scenic wilderness and is well known for the extensive Anasazi Indian ruins dating back to 1100 AD. The Anasazi farmed in this valley for more than 400 years and lived in multistoried stone and mud structures or caves carved out of the volcanic cliffs. An easy, self-guided walk of approximately 1 mile offers close-up views of the ancient ruins. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The tour will include a narration of historical and geological features of the area during the drive to Bandelier and a driving tour overview of Los Alamos. The tour will depart from the Eldorado Hotel at 1:00 p.m., returning at 5:00 p.m. The cost is $38.00 per person. Reservations for the tour must include payment and will be accepted on a first-received basis. Cancellations will not be refunded; however, a substitute will be accepted.
