Not a Ruin

This is not an Indian ruin. According to the National Park Service, the term "Indian Ruin" is now politically unacceptable. This is now either a cliff dwelling or the abandoned home of the Ancestral Puebloans. I didn't realize I was offending the Ancestral Pueloans all these years by calling their homes Indian ruins. I guess there goes another perfectly good word.
