    Description:

    Bus divers like this one as they drop of their charges for about an hour. Takes that long to go to down to the Cliff Palace and climb the 90 or so steps of the ladder out.

    Description:

    Not all overhangs were occupied. Some did contain places where grain was kept and may have since been removed by critters.

    Description:

    A good view point easily accesible from the road up the stairs to the left. Some just come to view, others to wait for the guided tour to the palace below.

    Having climbed down from the mesa, very apt (and some not so apt) tourists listen to the park ranger tell of the history and habits of the ancient pueblo people.
