Manitou Cliff Dwellings

Who would have known there is a little bit of ancient history practically in our backyard? Manitou Springs, just southwest of Colorado Springs, houses ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings. Some friends had gone previously with their kids and said that it was perfect for little ones, so we decided to head out and see it for ourselves. It was a fun family outing.

 Jake and Mom hanging out in the window of a one-room house.

Getting ready to climb up to a two room, two family structure. I was amazed at how small the homes were...then again, it took a lot more effort to build and it probably served its function of shelter quite well.

 Happy kid!!

 Brian had to get down on hands and knees to get in and out of this teepee. Makenna doesn't look too sure of the situation. lol
