Reubs in one of the cliff dwellings.
jpeg03-16-01-1121.jpg (161608 bytes) Nick (left), and Dave (right) exploring one of the many Native American cliff dwellings.  Note the ceiling is stained by soot, though it only goes down as far as the top of the door.  Not coincidentally, when sitting cross-legged on the floor, the soot (and therefore the majority of the smoke) is well above one's head.
jpeg03-16-01-1128.jpg (150054 bytes) Nick photographs an apartment complex-like array of cliff dwellings.  Note the linear postholes in the cliff wall.  Timbers were mounted in these holes to support the roofs of dwellings off of the cliff face.
