The Chacoans built elaborate road systems covering over 1,500 miles. Most of the roads connected to Chaco Canyon. The Great North Road leads from Chaco Canyon to Kutz Canyon. To the Puebloans a road is a type of altar, a channel for the life's breath, and to travel the straight road to the center place is to strive for equilibrium.
Approaching Kutz Canyon the North Road becomes a narrow corridor crossing a private commercial fracking fluid soil recovery farm. The North Road is criss-crossed with bulldozed roads for fracking soil trucks. Surrounded by the fracking fluid soil recovery fields Arena Alto Great House is several hundred yards from Kutz Canyon adjacent to the North Road. This sacred site's great kiva was recently bulldozed by road construction.
The North Road is more tha a guide or corridor linking Chacoan Great Houses and features. It is a map to a lifeway, it holds the stories of the Chaco civilization.
