Long House

The only way to see the cliff dwellings up and personal at Mesa Verda National Park is on a tour. Tours are often sold out days in advance, but we were lucky on our visit to the park and snagged tours of two of the cliff dwellings. Tours are great to learn information about the site, but hard to get photographs without other tour members in them. But if you're quick and on the ready, you can get some shots devoid of other members of the tour party. This was taken about halfway through our tour of Long House, one of the largest of the cliff dwellings in the park. This was built in the 1300s and still remains today. A true testament to the construction of the people that once called this home. Photo by Steve Coyle Photography ( http://www.stevecoylephotography.com)
