19th-Century Silver City, New Mexico sparkled with silver, gold and, yes, more copper than Arizona! Going back another millennium, the region bustled with Mogollon and Mimbres people whose legacy is well preserved in some of the world’s most beautiful pottery and in the awesome Gila Cliff Dwellings, snuggled in a high pine shrouded canyon.

Mark Bahti, anthropologist and author, is our guide to the past, telling tales of the Spanish, Mexican, Apache and Anglo history of the area, bringing the lives of ancient peoples to life and sharing a personal family ranching yarn or two. Visit Mogollon and Mimbres dwellings, ghost towns, mines, historic buildings, and a military fort. 

Delight in an exclusive hands-on behind-the-scenes appreciation of the world’s largest collection of Mimbres pottery during our personalized VIP Director's Tour! 

Travel in comfort in spacious new vans, where everyone enjoys the scenic beauty from their own window seat! Three hotel nights, many meals, plus travel & trip cancellation insurance all included.
