Cliff Dwellings - Mesa Verde, Colorado
1/640 @ f9 - 24mm - ISO 400


Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to 1300. Today the park protects nearly 5,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.

    Amazing that they are so similar to those I saw in New Mexico. And they are from the same era.

There are a lot of cliff dwellings in the "four corners" area. Mesa Verde has some really nice examples.
