Epic Journey Includes Stop at Crow Canyon
Annas Clark and Granddaughter Tour the U.S., Visit Crow Canyon
Longtime Crow Canyon friend Annas Clark and her granddaughter Jaclyn took an epic cross-country journey this summer—they began at their home in Tennessee and headed west to Colorado and Utah before turning south to Texas and heading home. Along the way, they made one important stop at Crow Canyon, where Jaclyn enjoyed a week-long Middle School Archaeology Camp.
Throughout their journey, Annas and Jaclyn visited educational, cultural, scenic, and tourist sites such as Graceland, Cadillac Ranch, Bandelier National Monument, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Grand Canyon national parks.
“Our trip across country was quite an adventure for Jaclynn,” Annas said. “And she had a ball at the camp.” She added that she brought her grandson Levi to Crow Canyon 10 years ago, and she always looked forward to the day she could bring Jaclynn to the Center.
Annas is a longtime Crow Canyon program participant, donor, and Chairman’s Council member. She first visited the Center in 1991 to attend a teachers workshop, and she has returned for a Navajo weaving workshop and numerous invitational trips and annual meetings since then. Her late husband, Eric, also participated in Archaeology Research Programs and Archaeology Lab Programs in the 1990s.
Annas is a retired eighth-grade science teacher, and she taught workshops for Project Archaeology, a nationwide archaeology and heritage education program, for many years. While her granddaughter learned about the archaeology of the Four Corners area and made new friends at the Middle School Archaeology Camp, Annas graciously helped out Crow Canyon’s development department with a mailing. The Crow Canyon staff thanks Annas for her friendship and all her support over the years.
