Anasazi Cliff House I

This group of buildings was crafted into a cliff face over 1,000 years ago.

Visitors must climb over the cliff and through narrow tunnels, security features created by the builders.

High Security and Adventure

Security barriers include a 32 foot, entrance ladder made from pine trunks and a narrow squeeze through a 12 foot tunnel.

My photograph of Balcony House features ruins to rooms on a plaza. Also shown are edges of two kivas (circular ceremonial chambers) built into the plaza floor. I am standing in a plaza, next to the cliff.

Behind me (not visible) is the narrow security tunnel used by the ancient builds to control access. Today, visitors crawl through the narrow tunnel to exit the site. There are 40 rooms in Balcony House.
