I am so grateful for where I live. So much public land... beautiful parks, monuments and preserves to explore! . #trailrunning #nationalmonuments #bandeliernationalmonument #findyourpark #publiclands #hiking #trails #explore #canyons #cliffdwellings #tentrocks #naturesbliss
Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado is home to the Ancestral Puebloans cliff dwellings. Built in the late 1190s, these are some of the most preserved archaeological sites in North America. 📷: @angelaishere - We ended up getting ranger-led tour tickets, the only way you can explore the inside of the dwellings, for the Balcony House. Described as the most intimate yet adventurous tour at Mesa Verde challenging your fear of ladders, heights, and small spaces. 😱 - Highly recommend taking this ranger-led tour. Not gonna lie, my acrophobia kicked in climbing the 32-foot ladder and then again scaling the rock face with only a chain link to prevent me from falling hundreds of feet off the mesa just to exit. But, it was 100% worth it! - #discovertheroad #nps #findyourpark #mesaverdenationalpark #balconyhouse #cliffdwellings #izziebleunp #nationalparkgeek #visitcolorado #optoutside #exploretocreate #wearetravelgirls #wanderlust #roadtripper
Mesa Verde National Park was impressive. Amazing that people were able to build and live in a cliff! #mesaverdememories #mesaverdenationalpark #cliffdwellings #nps #mesaverde #nationalpark #pueblo #nativeamerica #Colorado #history
Bandelier National Monument is amazing!! Protecting the home of the Ancestral Pueblo Archeological sites from the 1200’s. Great trails & you can crawl up to the caves inside the cliff walls! #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #wilderness #losalamos #nationalmonument #newmexico #exploremore #hiking #roadtrip #ancientpueblo #history #cliffdwellings #trails #ancient
While I was visiting the Cliff Dwellings, I also spent some time in the museum, learning about the Ancient Anasazi. Seeing the History and information gathered from over 1000 years ago was incredible! #ColoradoSprings #ManitouSprings #CliffDwellings #CliffDwellingsMuseum #Anasazi #Pueblo #History #Educate
Got the chance to walk through and explore some well preserved Anasazi Ruins from almost 1000 years ago! It was incredible! All through the site, plaques displayed information on each room and what it was used for, there were hidden art works and even old Pueblo graffiti etched into the laddering of the ‘Chiefs Home’. #ColoradoSprings #ManitouSprings #CliffDwellings #CliffDwellingsMuseum #Pueblo #Anasazi #AnasaziRuins #History
Sunset hike at Walnut Canyon National Monument. Hiking is my therapy! #naturetherapy #walnutcanyon #hikingadventures #travelblogger #beautifulscenery #cliffdwellings #nativeamerican #momblogger
My lone picture with Earl in Colorado. I’m glad to see and spend some time again with my not so little cousin anymore. :) I’ve seen him when he was 6 months old when I first visited the US 25 years ago and bonded with him when he visited the Philippines when he was 8 or 9 years old. The last time I saw him and spent time with him was 2 years ago when I went back to the US to attend his wedding. You always have a kuya/older brother in me. See you again real soon! ❤️ #fambam #cousins #cousinslikebrothers #family

Made our second detour on our trip to see the Cliff Dwellings of Mesa Verde. Sometimes I think it would be fun to live on a cliff. Then I remember that they probably didn’t have internet. #cliffdwellings #cliffpalace #mesaverde #colorado #travel #nointernet #detour #worthit
Sharing some of my favorite places with one of my favorite people! #cliffdwellings #bandeliernationalmonument #home

Made the trip from El Paso to the Gila National Forest to see the cliff dwellings today. These caves have been used for thousands of years, but around 750 years ago they had rooms built in them by the inhabitants. What an incredible piece of American history. . . . #gilanationalforest #silvercity #cliffdwellings #america #nativeamerican #americanhistory
Enjoying a short but much-needed vacay in New Mexico where we visited the Gila Cliff Dwellings Natl. Monument. Why did these people build here? Why did they leave? What were their lives like? Puts things in perspective. #gilacliffdwellingsnationalmonument #cliffdwellings #newmexico #southwest #mogollonpeople #nativeamerican #nativeamericanhistory #americanhistory #archaeology

Walnut Canyon National Monument, once home to the cliff-dwelling Sinagua people. “Sinagua = without water). These were industrious folks. #flaggstaff #roadtrip #walnutcanyon #utahjuniper #bananayucca #cliffdwellings #sinagua #arizona #crosscountrytrip
The ruins of the cliff dwellings under the vertical wall of Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. Known as the White House, built in the 11th century by the Ancestral Puebloans, abandoned in the 14th century. #CanyonDeChelly #Arizona #CliffDwellings
A week on the road testing out the van life with an amazing girlfriend, 2 incredible puppies, no leashes, no deadlines, no gameplan, and a couple of bikes is the best way to explore, thanks for making dreams come a reality @hannyy7 #sedona #secretcanyon #coloradoriver #grandcanyon #northrim #eastrim #horseshoebend #cliffdwellings #mexicanhat #valleyofthegods #monumentvalley #almostvanlife #mtblife #explore #outside #hike #bike #dogs #hikeaz #exploremore #arizonahiking
“Shelter from the Storms”—and from the wind, rain, sun, heat, wild animals, and hostile adversaries! The Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde must have been a cool place to live a thousand years ago. Even had running water (springs).

There is so much to see and do in Arizona, I love it!! Photos of some of the ruins at Montezuma Well. I’m so glad we went here and Montezuma Castle; both are amazing, I couldn’t believe how up close you are able to view the Ruins at the Well. A definite must see!!!! #montezumawell #montezumacastle #montezumacastlenationalmonument #nationalparks #sinagua #cliffdwellings #ruins #history #exploreyourworld #travel #travelphotography #travellife #mytravels #exploringarizona #arizona #campverde #hiking #hikingadventures
DESTINATION OF THE DAY - GILA CLIFF DWELLINGS: Established on Nov. 16, 1907, as one of the first monuments in the country, the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is located near Silver City in southwest New Mexico.  The Gila area was home to the Mogollon/Mimbres culture and was the traditional homeland of the Eastern Bands of Chiricahua Apache. The Cliff Dwellings provide a chance to get up-close and explore the way the ancestors of the Puebloan people lived over 700 years ago. More at NationalParkTraveling.com
Coming from Eastern Canada 🇨🇦, something I really wanted to see were cacti 🌵Turns out there is a bunch in #tontonationalforest ! Over there, we also got to see #cliffdwellings that served as housing in the 13th and 14th century! #tontonationalmonument
Nick and I had a blast today! Antelope Canyon with the Navajo Indians was really cool. So much fun being adventurous in the US. #antelopecanyon #vermillion #cliffdwellings #cavedweller #leesferry #navajobridge @nationalparkservice
#TBT to eating breakfast while looking over the cliff dwellings. We got to the park super early as had the entire place to ourselves. #Recklesslycasual #roadtrip #usa #nationalparks #mesaverde #cliffdwellings #nofilter #nofilterneeded #naturephotography #igtravels #travelgoals #traveladdict
Our next stop on our spring road trip was Mesa Verde National Park. This was one of our longer stops at nearly a week. Despite planning possible day trips we ended up spending all of our time exploring the park. We enjoyed the slower pace and a chance to rest from all the travel days. #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #exploretheoutdoors #cliffdwellings #colorado #visitcolorado #roadtrip #roadtripusa #nps #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #familyadventure #familytravel #findyourpark #learnthroughadventure
Besides a nice stroll to view the cliff dwellings we got to climb some ladders... #bandaliernationalmonument #nationalmonument #newmexico #cliffdwellings
Defiance House Ruins & Pictographs. Houseboated with @w.r.hulse on Lake Powell October 22-30 2016. Explored various canyons north of Bullfrog including Forgotten Canyon, which is where Defiance House circa 1250 AD is located. * * * #lakepowell #utah #houseboating #pictograph #stevenotatwork #cliffdwellings #cliffdwelling #puebloans #ruins #indianart
