I am still going through the pictures I took during our stay in the Four Corners area and our visit to Mesa Verde National Park. The colors of the high desert, combined with the sudden appearance of a cliff dwelling, are breath-taking. As you descend toward the Spruce Tree House, glimpses are caught here and there.
Can you imagine the surprise of seeing these buildings tucked underneath a sheer cliff, with no apparent access? Trees above, canyon below, with only ropes and ladders and narrow paths to come and go.
