Mesa Verde

     We went there on a vacation when I was a small child.  Awe inspiring every time I have returned.
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado.
The Puebloans inhabited Mesa Verde between 600 to 1300, though there is evidence they left before the start of the 15th century. They were mainly subsistence farmers, growing crops on nearby mesas. Their primary crop was corn, the major part of their diet. Men were also hunters, which further increased their food supply. Puebloan women are famous for their elegant basket weaving and pottery; their artifacts are highly prized. The Puebloans kept no written records.

Mesa Verde is best known for cliff dwellings, which are structures built within caves and under outcroppings in cliffs – including Cliff Palace, thought to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America. The Spanish term Mesa Verde translates into English as "green table". It is considered to contain some of the most notable and best preserved archaeological sites in the United States
