Last weekend, I went to Colorado Springs to see my friend Bryce. We had an amazing weekend I will post more about but I wanted to put up some pics of one of our adventures.
Monday one of the many things we did was go to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings in Manitou Springs. This place is pretty cool.
The Cliff Dwellings were built 700 years ago by the Anasazi, out of the sandstone cliffs
There was even art on the walls. It is presumed that this piece was a prayer for rain.
This was a window hole and I have no idea what the vines and sticks were about but it made for a very cool picture
You can wander inside all of the rooms. Many were single family rooms but some are two or three stories tall for multiple families. It is amazing how cool it was inside of them, even though it was really warm outside.
This is a door opening and the stones used to close it up. I guess if you had to get out in a hurry, you would be screwed.
It was a pretty cool place--the museum had a lot of amazing artifacts in it, so I got all cultured up. That always makes me feel better for being frivolous and taking time just for me which is what this trip was really about.
Stay tuned for more photos from other adventures and takes of my great weekend with a treasured friend I am so glad to have back in my life.
