The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument

WOW! This unique area reveals the homes of prehistoric Indians in southwestern New Mexico and offers a glimpse into the lives of the Indians that inhabited the region from the 100s to the early 1300s A.D. The Gila Cliff Dwellings were built in the 1280s. These Pueblo people built their homes in natural caves and in the open, and examples of both are here. Probably not more than 8-10 families lived in the caves at any one time. The rooms were used for a generation. Very exciting.
