Hovenweep National Monument

2 Days until "The National Parks: America's Best Idea"

Situated on the border of Utah and Colorado, Hovenweep is home to unique ruins and cliff dwellings. Hike around Little Ruin Canyon for great views of many ruins like Square Tower. Nearly 500 people lived in the area at one time, departing sometime after 1300AD. Keep watch for beautiful collared lizards which like to hang out in the ruins!
