Morning: An expert from St. Philip's College will explain why Texas is the most universally famous place in America in a two-hour lecture of Texas history in the hotel’s ballroom, focusing on the sweeping events and fascinating characters that make Texas the amazing place it is; what John Steinbeck described as "a state of mind . . . a mystique closely approximating a religion . . . the obsession, the proper study, and the passionate possession of all Texans.”

Afternoon: Led by a local expert, we’ll embark on a walking field trip to explore some of San Antonio’s most iconic sites. We’ll also learn about the development of the River Walk and its impact on the transformation of the area. The Spanish colonial mission we know as the Alamo was established in 1718, and moved to its current location in 1724. Its history is fascinating and complex. After the gallant defense by 182 Texans against Gen. Santa Anna’s army in 1836, “Remember the Alamo!” became a rallying cry for Texas independence. We'll hear the story of the Alamo, then get some time to go inside to visit the Shrine, view artifacts, and watch a short educational movie. The Menger, oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi, was established in 1859 and set the standard of luxury for its day. Among the historic events that took place here, Teddy Roosevelt recruited his “Rough Riders” cavalry brigade in 1898. Our local expert will take us inside for a peek at the elaborately appointed lobbies and the Menger bar, to see memorabilia from Roosevelt's time. We'll understand more about Texas pride as we visit these historic sites.

Sometimes called the anthropology of astronomy, archaeo-astronomy is the study of astronomical practices and related legends and lore including religious beliefs and world views in ancient cultures. The Ancestral Pueblo people of northwestern New Mexico studied the heavens and incorporated celestial events into their lives a thousand years ago. Much as some have speculated about the uses of Stonehenge, the Puebloans had a comprehension of geometry in relation to solar and lunar cycles that helped them orient their constructions to record equinoxes and solstices. Following the lecture, we will take a short walk to the Santa Fe School of Cooking for a class about local cuisine. We'll learn why Southwestern cuisine is so popular as we view a demonstration of the preparation of a traditional New Mexican meal.

Most of the work is from the Southwest. The Museum of International Folk Art continues to focus on indigenous populations from around the world through their art – ranging from ceremonial dress and masks to furniture. The museum hosts the largest collection of international folk art in the world, including wings featuring some of the 106,000 pieces donated by collectors Alexander and Susan Girard and Lloyd Cotsen's Neutrogena collection.

On arrival at the Visitor Center we'll view the exhibits, then depart to explore some of the stacked-stone ruins with our Study Guide. Chaco Culture National Historical Park preserves one of North America's most significant and fascinating cultural and historic areas. Chaco was a major center of Ancestral Puebloan culture between 850 and 1150 CE. It was a hub of ceremony, trade, and administration for the prehistoric Four Corners area. It is remarkable for its monumental public and ceremonial buildings. Construction of the buildings, roads, ramps, dams and mounds required a great deal of well-organized and skillful planning, designing and resource gathering. The Chacoan people combined pre-planned architectural designs, astronomical alignments, geometry, landscaping, and engineering to create an ancient urban center of spectacular public architecture that continues to amaze us a thousand years later.

Lunch: Boxed lunches.

Afternoon: Our exploration of Chaco Canyon continues after lunch before we depart for Nageezi and Santa Fe.
