Montazuma Castle

The following description is from the National Park Services web site:

Montezuma Castle National Monument
Gaze through the windows of the past into one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a 1,000 year-old story of ingenuity and survival in an unforgiving desert landscape.
Marveling at this enduring legacy of the Sinagua culture reveals a people surprisingly similar to ourselves.

We visited the site in the early morning as in July the temperature was such that afternoon visits were unbearable.  I tell you this because the lighting could have been better but with what we had to play with the outcome was not to bad.

I hope you enjoy these.  Next post Montazuma's Well.

All comments welcome.
