Alkali Canyon Northwest
Alkali Canyon is a tributary to McElmo Canyon on the southeast side of the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument in southwest Colorado. The access I used was a west turn onto County Road N off of Highway 491, then a south turn on County Road 20. This area is northwest of Cortez, Colorado. This access is shown on the current Canyons of the Ancients maps that are available at the Anasazi Heritage Center near Dolores, CO.
