A long abandoned dwelling in the cliff along Walnut Creek. The settlement here, like the one at Wupatki, has been empty for around 800 years.

Woah! I don't think I would have lasted very long living there either! Hard to have friends over :-)

These early people knew how to make housing that was a protection from most sides, had a difficult access to the opening, and was great place to bad weather. Fine shot of this early dwelling.

je connais ce canyon pour y être allée après une neige, c'était superbe... J'ai toujours cru que ce canyon s'appelait comme cela parce que certains rochers ressemblent à des écailles de noix de grenoble mais non...

@Sue-Ann: It must be beautiful after a snow. I would like to see that.
A really wild-looking place.

Amazing how the old settlement clings to the cliff face - I guess the paths have long since eroded.
