Sedona, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Would Your House Look This Good 800 Years From Now? Today we gaze through the windows of the past into one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a story of ingenuity, survival and ultimately, prosperity in an unforgiving desert landscape.

I missed this when I went through Sedona. An ancient condo and every room with a view. Thanks for sharing this special one.

Yes taosmtngirl. I'd love to visit the "old ones" homes--Chaco, Petra in Syria, a dozen or so places in AZ and NM,

Maybe in my next life, time travel will have been discovered so I can go "Back to the Future."

Beautiful photo of Montezuma Castle and the cliff where it resides. Wouldn't you love to go back in time and see it being used?

I've been on the same trail as you. Did you go to Montzuma's well (It's water, but I don't recall the exact name.)

I live in NM and it and AZ have many places tucked into the hills that housed active civilizations.

Just think, these places, Chaco, Canyon Chile, Four Corners, all were built by natives, using native materials, designed by non-licensed builders, and NO Building Permits.

Yet, they continue to stand, some as long as ten centuries. Makes one wonder about "our civilization."
