55 - Chaco

It was the home of the ancient ones, proud people who traveled and traded throughout the world as they knew it. 











While neighbors looked on in envy, they built cities and temples to showcase their achievements. 











Their civilization would last forever, or until the droughts came. 











Now only dry stones remain to tell the tale.

About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

I wandered around in Chaco many years ago. I mostly remember one round chamber after another and ladders I would not want to have to climb.
