Bandelier National Monument (NM)

This was a cool stop! People have been inhabiting this canyon for thousands of years. The largest, agriculturally based population reaching over 500 inhabitants around 1400 AD. The cliffs were dug into using stone tools and bricks built in the front with timber supports. I included an image of what the village most likely looked like. The cliff dwellings were up above and going back into the canyon.
We’ve seen a handful of deer and two coyotes just this afternoon. And we have the entire campground to ourselves!!
