Looking Toward Spruce Tree House

Looking Toward Spruce Tree House (1 of 1)

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.
