Cliff Dwellings

There are a lot of cliff dwellings in the Southwestern United States. To me some of the most impressive are those that seem hidden and tucked away in alcoves far from any tourist area. Some of the most prominent cliff dwellings, like Montezuma Castle National Monument are inaccessible simply by virtue of the number of people that visit. Some of the other National Monuments, like Tonto National Monument, let you get right up next to the ruins. This particular ruin is in Bridges National Monument in Utah. It is accessible if you want to take a really long around about hike down into the Canyon. Maybe I will someday. You never know where I might end up going. I still have some time left to walk Arizona (and Utah). Hint: you need to click on the photo above to really see it.

  1. You really need to see the larger photo to appreciate it. In the smaller photo the housing looks like fallen rocks.
