Colorado is so rich in history and scenery. I love this state.
When is the last time you've been in one of these!?!#fbf #manitouspringscolorado #cliffdwellings #nativeamerican #traveltheworld
A little spooked when #nativeamerican voices came from the walls and a little boy said, "I see a clown" at the #kiva where they used to hold spiritual ceremonies... #cliffdwellings #tipi

Visit Mesa Verde National Park for a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people. This park includes 600 cliff dwellings and nearly 5,000 known archeological sites. #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #coloradonationaparks #ancetralpueblo #cliffdwellings #archeoloigcalsites #worksofman #greentable #experiencecolorado
For nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons – longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau.  In the place called Tseyi, their homes and images tell us their stories. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock, and farm the lands in these canyons. The National Park Service and Navajo Nation actively work together to manage park resources.

Established on November 16, 1907 as one of the first monuments to be created in the country, the Gila Cliff Dwellings near Silver City in southwest New Mexico provide a chance to get up-close and explore the way the ancestors of the Puebloan people lived over 700 years ago. The Gila area was once home to the Mogollon / Mimbres culture, and was the traditional homeland of the Eastern Bands of Chiricahua Apache.
Amazing find! Totally worth the $6 tour. Visit Hole n' The Rock museum. Truly amazing home built by an amazing married couple in the 1960's. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #1960s #homes #unusualhomes #unique #uniquehomes #dwelling #cliffdwellings #vintage #tour #rock #cave #home #cavehome #offgrid #diy #lapidary #lapidaryartist #sandstone #archesnationalpark #arcitecture #oneofakind #oneoff #utah #travelutah #travelblogger #photooftheday #travelphotooftheday #nps
Guys. Canyon de Chelly is my new favorite place in Arizona. Fascinating Anasazi history, ongoing Navajo culture (many still live in the canyon) and dramatic scenery...for more info on this cool Arizona road trip spot, check the link in my profile! Have you been to Canyon de Chelly? #canyondechelly #explorenavajo #anasazi #cliffdwellings #arizonaroadtrip #northernarizona #arizonacanyons #navajonation
Wandering in the cliff dwellings really is something special. 💫
This place is amazing. Crazy how people once lived. #mesaverde #colorado #cliffdwellings
Nordenskiold Site 16....the unromantic name of this double-decker cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde. It begs the question, what are the other 15 sites that Mr. Nordenskiold studied? 🧐 I guess archeologists have to keep some secrets to themselves... 😉 —————————————— Now added to my Etsy shop!

Bandelier National Monument protects over 33,000 acres (133.5 square km) of rugged but beautiful canyon and mesa country as well as evidence of a human presence here going back over 11,000 years.  Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities.

Here's some photographs of my Durango trip outside of the Good Medicine Confluence. Thx Kiley, Eric & Dan for the hospitality & adventure sharing. & thx to everyone who purchased my wares at the Confluence. Without the support of my craft, this trip couldn't of happened. I'm home. Clocks reset. My focus is now making making making for NMF! #rockies #adventure #artifacts #pueblo #cliffdwellings #waterinthedesert #smellofpine
Beauty is found all over the world. We explored this gorgeous canyon and visited another cliff dwelling. It was trully a blessing to be able to do this. @hannahstephonze @lindsze17 @alyssa_5678 #canyondechelly #cliffdwellings #nativeamericanculture #archeology #nature #blufftoncrosscultural #blessed #whitehouseruins
Day 6 was Mesa Verde day! First time camping in a national park and I learned so much today about the pueblos and their society. These cliff dwellings are incredible and the area was so beautiful! (Pic 4 has people for scale) #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #nationalpark #colorado #getoutside #nature #nps #cliffdwellings #pueblos #cliffs
Housing units of Mesa Verde were organized around kivas, circular, subterranean rooms with ceremonial and residential use. If you visit dwellings today, you will see the kivas without their roofs but in the past they would have been covered. The space around them would have functioned as a small plaza. #mesaverde #archdaily #ancient #cliffdwellings #instamoment #antilopecanyon #instatravel #wildlife #exploremore #instagood #instadaily #freepeople #adventure #explore #seetheworld #traveldeeper #nofilter #instamoment #mountains #adventure #adventurethatislife
Finally made to stunning Mesa Verde, cliff dwellings built and inhabited from 550 A.D. to 1300 A.D. Cliff Palace is the largest cluster of dwellings, has about 150 rooms and more than 20 circular rooms. Due to its location, it was well protected from the elements. The buildings originally ranged from one to four stories, and some hit the natural stone ceiling. To build these structures, people used stone and mud mortar, along with wooden beams adapted to the natural clefts in the cliff face. #mesaverde #cliffdwellings #instamoment #antilopecanyon #instatravel #wildlife #exploremore #instagood #instadaily #freepeople #adventure #explore #seetheworld #traveldeeper #nofilter #instamoment #mountains #adventure #adventurethatislife
This archaeological jewel was inhabited by the Salado culture from 1250 to 1450 CE. Steep hike, but worth the climb! #tontonationalmonument #saladoculture #cliffdwellings #nps
Indian dwelling hunting! Love hiking in Sedona! . #sedonahiking #cliffdwellings #indianruins #pictographs
Gila Cliff Dwellings. Use to do a ton of B&W stuff. Not so much anymore? Anyway some photos just beg for B&W. #NewMexico #cliffdwellings #nationalforest
Peering into Cliff Palace. Even though it was closed to visitors, it was still quite the site to see. I’m getting ready for another adventure! Stay tuned for updates ✌🏻
As it heats up outside I’m reminded of how insanely hot some of these dwellings can get in the summer. Inside the shade of the dwellings it is significantly cooler even with the interior plaster deteriorated. There were a family of lizards on the inside of these dwellings hunting bugs and finding some shade. Can’t wait to explore more in this area soon. #bearsears #utah #savebearsears #arizona #cliffdwellings #ruins #adobe #plaster #navajonation #nativeamerican #anasazi #ancestralpuebloan #southwest #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #explore #az365 #getoutside #arizonahiking #arizonaphotographer #utahgram #utahisrad #lizard #archaeology
The ruins at palataki. No filter needed for these vibrant colors. I love being able to see these historic sites during our trips. This is by far, one of most favorites. It’s not often you get to be so close to such an amazing site. These ruins have been untouched and are standing just as they were when discovered in the 1800s. The sinagua people are believed to be the ancestors of the Hopi and several other tribes. #palataki #sinagua #sedona #arizona #cliffdwellings
There’s NO time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this!! @mesaverdenps #CliffDwellings #colorado #cliffcities
I was on the search for elk Or bear, mountain lion or javelina But the Park Ranger said not likely So I guess I had to settle For breathtaking high desert skies Stone storytellers and stunning sun flares River music, blessed sun and a gentle wind 🌲
It takes a lot to be a cliff diver. @redbullcliffdiving @redbull @redbulltv
