  • Quite a few steps but not a particularly hard hike to see this ancient dwelling. I found it interesting that the general consensus is that these people walked away from the area so many years ago, perhaps because of climate change. That was ling before oil or gas, cars, or factories. Maybe we humans are smaller than we think.
  • Incredible history and beautiful surroundings. Be prepared. Long drive through the park and lots of hiking. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.
