We’re back from vacation, a trip to Durango, Colorado and the Four Corners region. It was a mostly good trip with a few small negatives, like getting lost on the way back and a broken windshield on the rental car. Over the next couple of days I’ll post some pictures and some thoughts I had on the trip.
I’ll start with our first destination, Hovenweep National Monument in southeastern Utah. It was built by the ancestral Puebloans, who lived there from about 500 to 1300 CE. Then they moved on, presumably because of climate change, but no one really knows – the legends of their current descendants just say their ancestors lived there, not why they left.
Here’s a shot of Cathy and I standing in front of one of the ruins. You can’t really tell from this shot, but behind the building is a canyon – the structures were all build right on the edge.
More to come over the next few days…
