"Big Crane" ~ Basketmaker petroglyph
Basketmaker petroglyph "in-situ"
(Click on photos for larger image)
This Basketmaker petroglyph appeared in Sally J. Cole's book "Legacy on Stone" I had been looking for it for just about a year. Today I was able to visit this site and capture the "big bird" in my camera lens.
Beyond Mesa Verde is my site that I use as an introduction to the Bluff and Blanding ruins. I do not really update this site other than when a new book or something relevant comes along. Click on the above photo to visit~ BEYOND MESA VERDE
If you are in the Four Corners area and love Anasazi ruins, this is a great place you may want to stay at. Check it out. Click on the logo or the photos below to link to The Kelly Place website.
The Raven House near Kelly Place
Relax in an adobe-style lodge or cabins, nestled between sculpted red-rock canyons and majestic Sleeping Ute Mountain. Fruit trees and gardens, prehistoric Indian ruins in various stages of archaeological excavation, and the amazing natural beauty of this “oasis on the edge of the desert” provide a unique setting for your visit. A self-guided tour of on-site ruins or an archaeologist-guided hike into Canyons of the Ancients National Monument on their northern border will leave you wondering about what it was like here a thousand years ago. Enjoy the relaxed southwestern hospitality on this secluded 40-acre estate. RV and tent-sites available.
