Bandelier National Monument
14 days until "National Parks: America's Best Idea"
Frijoles Canyon is home to Bandelier's Ancestral Puebloans dwellings. The inhabitants of this canyon built in a similar style to that of Chaco Canyon, but also made use of the magnificent cliff walls, building rooms right into the cliff walls. You'll see the Big Kiva, Long House, and if you travel further into the canyon you'll ascend ladders into Alcove House. Visit Bandelier in the fall for colorful foliage!
