Cliff Palace

The Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde National Park is a remarkably preserved cliff dwelling. It is the largest cliff dwelling in North America. It was occupied between 1190 AD to 1260 AD. Only a part of the huge building is visible in this photo taken from across the canyon. The trip to visit the cliff dwelling is interesting involving climbing a number of ladders and a steep trail.
