Moonlight Melody @ Chimney Rock National Monument Amphitheater

Chimney Rock National Monument

Archaeological site
3179 CO-151
Chimney Rock, Colorado


Moonlight Melody @ Chimney Rock National Monument 6:45pm. 

The Moonlight Melody program takes place in the amphitheater area, with an amazing view of the pinnacles above.  The program will begin with a relaxing walk up the 1/4-mile nature trail above the amphitheater, providing an experience of the natural environment along with beautiful views of the pinnacles.  Upon returning to the amphitheater, the program resumes with an informative lecture on topics specific to the Chimney Rock site such as a discussion of the ancestral Puebloan culture, archaeoastronomy theories, the Major Lunar Standstill, area geology, etc.
As the moonlight increases and evening falls, you will be treated to the haunting melodies of a native American flute played by our own Charles Martinez. Gaze in wonder as the moon rises as it did over 1000 years ago when the ancestral Puebloans called Chimney Rock home.
This program lasts approximately 2.5 hours including check-in, trail walk, lecture and moonrise musical performance. This program is recommended for ages 4 and up. Guests must enter through the Hwy 151 entry gate during check-in period stated below; the gate will be locked at the end of that time.
Tickets are $16.00 (age 13 and up) and $8.00 (ages 5-12) plus a booking fee and are non-refundable and non-transferrable. In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather, rain checks will be available. 

Reservations strongly recommended. Limited space. Walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis.
