Very nice scene shot. I visited there in late October once, and there was no wait, but ice, snow and fogg. I remember that this was the coldest I ever was on that US trip. But what a great place to visit

Very nice angle to appreciate the whole place. Seems impresive what they do in those times...v.

An excellent view of this impressive place. Though the group of people does add scale, I wonder at the wisdom of letting tourists walk around this archeologically fragile site.
