Further along Frijoles Creek, you come to this place high up on the canyon wall. Let your eye follow the ladders and people up to that dark hole. That's where we are headed.

That's a dangerous climb - I wouldn't like to risk it. Fantastic terrain.
27 Feb 2013 11:58am
Wow, that looks like quite the climb. The people really give us a perspective here.
27 Feb 2013 12:28pm
Incredible sense of scale - it is like a natural rock castle.
27 Feb 2013 1:07pm
It is a site made for the sportsmen!:) Beautiful place!

Definitely not for the faint of heart! Nicely captured Steve! ;-)

27 Feb 2013 3:40pm
Amazing place. Nicely captured. :)
27 Feb 2013 4:06pm
very nicely framed with that tree in the foreground. impressive though these buildings are, getting to and into them must have been quite a challenge ...
27 Feb 2013 4:27pm
Une visite touristique très sportive ! Vraiment très intéressant !
27 Feb 2013 5:09pm
must've been quite a hike going around this place, nice shot!
27 Feb 2013 5:31pm
Wonderful and beautiful capture!
27 Feb 2013 6:22pm
Glad there are people in your shot to give me an idea of the magnitude of this place.
27 Feb 2013 6:32pm
I like this "setting" shot of the laboriously way to getting to the house. Nice one.
27 Feb 2013 6:40pm
es impresionante , la toma fotografica . ahora me dejas la duda de hacia donde conduce la escalera , pienso que tendremos que esperar a la proxima foto . un beso muy grande . ALejandra
27 Feb 2013 7:21pm
@AMH: Deje que su ojo sigue las escaleras y la gente hasta ese agujero oscuro. Ahí es donde nos dirigimos.
A spectacular trek! Excellent image!
27 Feb 2013 7:29pm
Such an amazing treck
Great lighting and details
27 Feb 2013 7:48pm
Belle escalade !
27 Feb 2013 8:05pm
I don't know where I have been, Steve - I can't believe I have missed so many of your images - Longhouse I, Petroglyphs, Longhouse 2 etc...They are really fantastic...This one is magnificent and I am still wondering if I would or could make it up those ladders - not so much the physicak but the mental...I guess I will have to make the decision when we go. I know Mrs J probably would not do it so I may have to go it alone. This is a beautiful site though. What a trasure this place is!! Wonderful shots, Steve :-) SOrry I missed you..All I can blame it on is work! :-)

@Denny Jump Photo: My wife sat on a log by Frijoles Creek while I was up there.
I think you'd have to be pretty much trim and in great shape to live up there. Modern folk would demand elevators or escalators, at least. Haha.
27 Feb 2013 9:19pm
Yah, I think, for me, it would be the "descent" that would get me ...the "ascent" probaby I could do :-) After 65 years of living including a combat tour in Vietnam, I would hate to "check out" by having a dizzy spell on a ladder and falling 300 feet to the bottom :-)
27 Feb 2013 9:32pm
Wonder if the people that lived there invented ladders !~
27 Feb 2013 9:50pm
Wow! That is come climb. Hope you make it to the top OK.
27 Feb 2013 10:04pm
wonderful composition and textures. i like the touch of green
27 Feb 2013 10:14pm
A beautiful view, the protection was perfect, and they could easily defend themselves. Excellent photo, the framing is superb.
Have a nice day.
27 Feb 2013 10:27pm
I like this long shot-it provides scale.
28 Feb 2013 10:44am
Quite the climb!
28 Feb 2013 4:51pm
Lovely scene, but slightly scary!
28 Feb 2013 10:54pm
Despite it looking pretty scary, I'd like to try it out one day though...and one must be grateful they have those ladder things ! it's better than attempting to get up there without them!

Mountain exploration is for the courageous only....I admire your courage!
