Living on a cliff

Besides the fact that Walnut Canyon is fun to hike around, there are old historic dwellings that were built by the Sinagua Indians that you can view. We were able to go inside some of them and tried to imagine what it was like living there so long ago. You would have to be sure-footed since most were sitting on a cliff. The view was beautiful and I guess you didn’t have to worry about cleaning the floors so that’s a good thing. The bad thing would have been no windows and no central heating. ¬†And where’s the elevator?? They must have stayed in great shape to be climbing those cliffs all the time. If you ever get to Walnut Canyon, I would recommend taking the longer hike so you can get up close.
