"Cliff Palace Anasazi Indian Ruins #1"
September 2012, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado
Cliff Palace is a spectacular Anasazi ruin containing more than 150 rooms, and is located in the cliffs of Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado. It is the largest cliff dwelling in all of North America. It was built by the Anasazi somewhere around year 1200.
This late-summer image shows typical monsoonal clouds developing overhead. The enormous alcove in which the ruins are situated provide more than enough protection from any thunderstorm.
