Saturday, the 14th
We enjoyed very nice accommodations at Kelly Place, which has a nice collection of black on gray ware found on the premises over the years.
Sunday, the 15th
We prepared for our explorations by visiting the Anasazi Heritage Center.
There is a 12th century pueblo and kiva at the top of the hill above the center.
Next, we visited Lowry Pueblo, in Canyons of the Ancients.
The roof in the background protects a kiva.
I am always fascinated by the 700-900 year old timbers that still serve as roof beams or lintels.
Off to Painted Hands Pueblo.
The eponymous hands.
Holly Tower and Holly House.
Spectacular views make it possible to imagine Sand Canyon in the days it was a thriving community.
Tuesday, the 17th
An artist's impression of the Sand Canyon Pueblo. We saw this at the Crow Canyon Archeological Center Tuesday morning.
