Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument – New Mexico

Hi there folks. Dave and Janice back with you. Check out this cool place! In this video we visit Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument in New Mexico. We knew it would be interesting but WOW! This place was WAY COOL! And it’s FREE! Here’s what the National Park Service has to say about it:

“For thousands of years, groups of ancient nomads used caves above the Gila River as temporary shelter. In the late 1200s, people of the agricultural Mogollon (Southern Ancestral Pueblo) culture made it a home. They built rooms, crafted pottery and raised children in the cliff dwellings for one or two generations. By approximately 1300, the Mogollon had moved on, leaving the walls behind.”
