Southwest Cliff Dwellings
 
By Hank Pennington and Matt Blaisdell
 
It's common to encounter multi-story dwellings, even towers in ruins.

Wide angle lenses and small apertures are often required for photography close to the ruins.

Some ruins are best seen and photographed from afar. Both telephoto and wide angle lenses can be used to great advantage.

The scattering of larger hand prints at eye level and smaller prints down low create a clear record of the families that once lived here.

In addition to petroglyphs etched from stone, the overhang of the cliff often preservers "pictographs" or paintings.  In this case red hand prints seem almost like ancient signatures of former residents.  Sadly, many modern visitors feel compelled to leave their own "signatures" in stone.
