One of the best preserved monuments to ancient Native American culture and architecture lies near the Four Corners area of southwestern Colorado. Mostly built into sandstone alcoves and caves along south and southwestern-facing canyon cliffs, the Ancestral Puebloan people, or Anasazi, constructed adobe buildings with rooms and kivas. Some of these buildings, such as the Cliff Palace, had over 150 rooms, and housed over 100 people.



Most houses were much smaller, and only housed 1-5 people. Large or small, the cliff dwellings were set up to maximize water usage efficiency, leaving most of the mesas above for agriculture. The Anasazi made reservoirs for holding extra rain runoff, and made terraces to grow more corn with less erosion of soil.

However, even the careful planning of the Anasazi could not overcome a changing climate, and by 1300 AD, they were forced to leave their cliff homes for points south and east due to a 24 year drought. The Anasazi's decendants are now the Hopi in Arizona, and 19 tribes of Pueblo in New Mexico.

After the Anasazi left, Mesa Verde was mostly left alone until prospectors discovered it in the 1870s. Although treasure hunters looted many artifacts from the cliffs, archaeologists and preservationists lobbied the government to save the area, and their efforts were rewarded in 1906, when Theodore Roosevelt approved the creation of Mesa Verde National Park.

The cam below features Spruce Tree House, which features 130 rooms, and eight kivas. Home to an estimated 60 to 80 people, it measures 216 feet wide, and 89 feet deep!

Wow - Ylee, you really are doing over time if you are putting in 80 hours a week!

Saw your plea for ice cream.... I have just made some! Plain vanilla and then the last third I experimented by adding some honey and cinnamon before freezing.... I will have to wait to see if it worked... the spoon tasted good!! lol

Good evening! Last night tonight! Had some rain earlier, but now the skies have mostly cleared, with a light SW breeze! Might get up into the 90s by Wed., until a cold front that evening should cool things down a bit.

I know a couple of you out there has wanted pics of my garden, but with the ground being to wet to till, and with my workload hitting 80+ hours a week the past few weeks, my garden is a mess of weeds, and wouldn't make any magazine spread anytime soon! :( Beans, corn, cantaloupe, broccoli, and summer squash are doing well, but the tomatoes are struggling, as I set them in a boggier area than normal, and they're growing slow. Potatoes will have to be a re-do, as only one plant has come up!

I'm going to try to put up a new blog tonight, if work permits. It's been busy the past few days, unfortunately!

ycd, if I remember correctly, the Jodestal building is either brand new, or it's a complete makeover. I like it, as it looks like a medevial era helmet!

jus, all the rough stuff was well south of me, near the Tenessee border. All we had was light rain.

Hi, oz! I guess fog at Sydney harbor is an oddity? I'm surprised that it has carried on so long!

bug, I believe I've seen that documentary before. It's interesting how society's attitude toward preservation and conservation has evolved over the years. I've read what people did at Yellowstone, mostly out of ignorance that they were doing harm to the thermal features that were there.

Alley, I think you are the Chatham version of TroyLeslie, the way you keep the local varmits sleek and fat! :' )

Ice cream would be good! :' )

Whoo hooo a party at the feeder. 4 deer and a coon enjoying their banquet of noms. Reminds me of the kitties here, I gave them some hamburger today for a treat and even the bitty babies enjoyed their fill. Bet they will sleep well with their full tummies. Rain finally ended this afternoon so hopefully tomorrow will be a nice sunny start to Tuesday. Have to make a grocery run in the AM. Anything you want to add to the list...LOL

Anyway have a great evening everyone. 7 deer now at the cam minus one coon....

Last night, I watched the documentary, 'Paving the Way: The Park to Park Highway' on PBS.

It was really interesting. They touched on the Mesa Verde National Park and on Virginia McClurg and the Federation of Women's Clubs who finally formed the Colorado Cliff Dwellers Association who pushed to make it a protected site. Early tourists just dug up, pried loose and lifted anything not tied down there.

Good morning Ylee:
I've been watching the Yostedal cam with interest:
Are they re-roofing the building or tearing it down?
Just now it looks like there is new roofing (or at least new underlay) being installed.
Quadra shows NW wind at 8 mph - since the cam is aimed SE from shore ( am guessing) - no waves.
Have a good OT.

Good Morning, we either got little to no rain in Lewisville while I was at work yesterday or someone decided my rain gauges needed to be emptied.
It was a gully washer at work so there had to have been some at the house.

Good, ah, morning! This is the first time in the seven hours I've been at work that I've been able to post! :P It's been one of those nights here!

Been raining lightly most of the evening, with an occasional flash of lightning! Looks like it'll be ending soon!

Cams look OK; I may just be able to pound out a new blog by tomorrow night! Stay tuned!

Hi, wab! Nothing there at the moment!

Hope you got some rain, GG! We maybe have had a half inch today and tonight!

No sleep here, Trauma! I've been gettin' it! :' )

Bug, my theory of the "UFOs" at Mesa Verde is the glass the cam is behind, whether it's a specifically built enclosure, or someone's office window!

Morning!

The 'UFO' has disappeared at Mesa Verde. I know, it was probably just something on the lens or something catching the light but... then, again, you never know!

I see sheep in Swaledale, the weather is better at the lighthouse and there's some really fat squirrels at the feeder. They'd better watch out, now that we're posting 'limb rat' recipes!

I see, too, that the Milos wabbit's ears have almost detached from the body. A definite explanation as to why we'd never noticed it before. It has to do with the angle of the sun and time of year.

Briar, BarBecued Limb Rat gives me a big grin, I don't know why, lol!

If we keep on accumulating recipes like this, we could write our own Weather Underground Varmit Cookbook, LOL!

Add: what exactly are you putting the wine in on step 2 at the sauce portion of the recipe? :' )

REALLY??? It must be a sign of the times.
Found at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
Not too many years ago, no one would ever have thought of putting up such a stupid sign because people had enough common sense to know that squirrels could and would bite.

Then again, some folks will bite back. Where's the sign for that?

BarBecued Limb Rat

3 -4 squirrels
salt and pepper
water

SAUCE
1/2 cup grated onion
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco sauce
lemon, juice of
3 tablespoons mustard (of choice)
1/2 cup blackberry wine (any brand)

Directions:
1) skin and leave whole.
2) add salt and pepper.
3) put in deep pan, put about 1/2 inch water in pan.
4) cook 1 hour and 15 minutes, well covered.
5) take sauce and pour over squirrels.
6) cook uncovered fo 30 minutes.

Sauce Directions:
1) cook for about 30 minutes.
2) put wine in after you cook sauce.

No cam searching yet; work has been frustratingly busy! :P

bug, Mesa Verde is between Area 51 and Roswell, so you never can tell, lol!

Hi, Mass! In theory, if I can get a new blog up, the Nubble cam won't be up, as I try to put cams up from as many different locales as possible! However, the Northeast is always on my radar for finding cams, as there's a lot to see there!

Glad you're finally getting some sun!

Good Morning, Ylee!

I was curious to see how Maine's Nubble Lighthouse webcam looked this am, now that a weakened Andrea has finally passed through Mass. and reached the northerly "Down-East" destination. It also looks to have some pretty diehard tourists visiting there despite the obvious murky weather conditions!

I believe, altogether, we received approximately 3-5 inches of rainfall which began light to moderate early yesterday am, much heavier by early evening and lasting through the wee hours of this morning.

Currently, the sun's finally making a periodic appearance in its attempt to help dry things out. Our chilly am temps of 55F are beginning to climb to a potential of 75F degrees by late afternoon. Tomorrow, should be gorgeous with partly sunny skies and more seasonably warm temps in the upper 70's! YEAH! I still feel the need to completely thaw out from a most lingering wintry season.

Hope you'll keep my favorite Maine lighthouse cam up awhile longer if deciding to change over to others. I so enjoy being able to watch our more relatable New England scenery amongst those other fascinating ones found nationwide and abroad!

Let's hope the Floridians and all others more seriously impacted by T/S Andrea along the Eastern shorelines have the time to recover. Our particular forecast ahead has t'storms indicated Tues. through Thursday, so our buzzwords, during this time, may be crash, boom, bang, rain, mold and mildew! Ugh!

May you and others here manage to have a really decent weekend and week ahead!

Morning, Ylee.

Sounds like you've got the same weather we do. Sun and clouds.

I think I know why the Mesa Verde people disappeared; I see a UFO hovering just beneath the overhang! That, or someone is trying to signal for help with a mirror and using morse code.

Sunny in Swaledale and grey at the lighthouse. Not too many folks parked in the lot.

Good morning! A mix of sun and clouds this morning, with a slight chance of rain today. We had a light shower last night, not enough to matter much.

Looks like the Nubble lighthouse is getting pummeled by Andrea this morning! Nice day in Milos and Swaledale!

I'll start putting more effort in to finding new cams for the next blog. Nothing in mind for a theme or anything!

WTS, the grind is neverending this time of year, with almost everyone going on vacations and stuff! Probably won't slow down much until October!

Happy Saturday, Sandi!

Hi, Ylee. A bit soggy here and it was breezy this morning. Didn't get the rain we expected, which was good. got to work just fine.

Back in 2006, if you passed the test, they'd reimburse you for it. but only for the $$$ it cost for the test you passed. not the one you failed.

Now, they're screaming so about the bottom line, I don't think they reimburse anyone for passing.

That certificate is not required. they just like you to get it, if you work in the finance area. Which I do.

I figured I gave it a good shot. I'll likely retire in another few years, so why bother? then I got shuffled around to a new manager, who wants all her team certified.

Good morning! Cloudy and muggy day so far; don't know if we'll get any rain or anything.

Cams look OK; Denali's clouds have mostly parted, leaving an unobstructed view of Mt. McKinley! I'll start working on a new blog this week; sled dog puppy cam should be online in a few weeks, so the upcoming blog will be here until then!

Cal, you just make this group more esteemed, IMO! :' )

GG, I haven't seen that movie; I'll have to wiki it!

Bug, if your company wants you "certified", then the company should not only pay for the tests, but pay for your training! It's only fair, to me!

Alley, I'm not too worried about the deer and the other critters; in fact, I think the coons could use to lose a little weight! :' )

Mornin', Todd! It's your Friday, but my Monday! :P

Splish, splash.... It's gettin' a little wet here, Ylee.

Nah, I failed that test. Then failed the make up test. That was $200 already thrown down that drain.

My current manager is making noises about me getting that certificate. I really don't want to do it but she's being rather insistent. Easy for her; she doesn't have to cough up the money for me to do it. (She has her certificate) I know the stuff; I just freeze up on tests. That'll be at least another $100 wasted. Or more. Lord knows what they charge nowadays.

Well, it's time to go home; rain looks like it's about to stop.

wab, the bunk house sounds like a good place to put the in-laws when they visit! ;' )

Sandi, I wonder what kind of bathroom facilities they'll have 50 years from now, and will they be amused with our facilities?


What will we do in the future? It's all laid out in the classic film, "Demolition Man".
We will use the three sea shells of course.

Quoting traumaboyy:Sandi, Do you have an outhouse or outloo or outbog?? What would be the proper term in the land of knights and castles??

I don't know whether anyone has outside loos anymore in the UK, but many did fifty years ago. They were often called outside 'lavvies".
I remember my paternal grandma had an outhouse and chamber pots, but my maternal grandparents had a wonderful Victorian bathroom with a decorated porcelain toilet.
When I moved here I was determined to have two "facilities" and actually finished up with two bathrooms and a cloakroom....so three!! Not bad for two people!

A smaller boat is anchored in Milos; haven't seen that one before! Rain is to the south of us on the radar; there is a much bigger blob around Paducah, headed this way!

Bug, I spent the better part of an hour reading your old blogs! Did you (1) retake part 2 of that test, and (2) did you ever take another one?

Trauma, I reckon that since possums will eat anything, including some road kill, well, that just doesn't sound good! Coons are omnivores too, but they're a lot pickier!

Alley, it wasn't the patties that bothered me when I was growing up, it was the thistles and honeybees in the clover and rusty nails and whatnot in the yard and around the garage that prompted me to always wear shoes outside! Even now, I still go outside with footwear on! :' )

ROFLMBO...love this blog....makes me remember when I was growing up. Chamber pots, pails etc, outhouse with single hole and yes spider webs and other creepy crawlers and when we did not want to venture all the way out to it, there was the rest of the 200 acres we could use....LOL Many a time I had to carry the water bucket from the well to the house until we got indoor plumbing. Running barefoot in the summer was something we all did even chasing cows and stepping in cowpies. Damn am I ever dating myself...ROFLMBO So you see there are even Canadian Rednecks too and we are proud to be in such a fine group of folks.

The recipes sound pretty good. Coon is a fairly clean animal but possum? Well I just have to be really really hungry to get my mind wrapped around that one! Chicken is obviously wonderful and they are about the nastiest creatures on earth at least as far as their eating habits go.

I am a card carrying redneck, generations of rich redneck blood pulses through my arteries. Having said that, I DONT have a working outhouse so I am going to have to disagree with our generous host and vote Cal an honorary redneck!!

If you have a recipe for possum the same goes IMHO, so looks like we got a blog full of rednecks here!!

I imagine they got a snake or two in theirs, too. I also remember the chamber pots under the beds.

Have you ever read Lewis Grizzard's book, 'I Haven't Understood Anything Since 1962 and Other Nekkid Truths'? He has an outhouse story in there that is hilarious.

I used it in my outhouse blog: Link.

Yep, Ylee, a four holer. There were 9 people in the family. My great grands had 6 daughters and one son. With that many, you needed the extra seating!

Your grandma had a four holer, bug? If they kept magazines in there, that would bring a whole new meaning to "social media", lol! I had a great aunt who had a new two holer built in the 70s, and I thought that was someting! Grandma would get the occasional corn snake in hers; that was an adventure! She was so happy when her SIL built her a bathroom with a toilet, a sink, and a shower! No more keeping a big pot of bleach water under the bed!

I'll take a pass on the recipes, Alley, but I get visitors from all over, so who knows? Someone out there may put one to use!
