Dave and I take a quick hike on the Tsankawi Prehistoric Sites trail at Bandelier National Monument where we see the ruins of cool cliff dwellings where the ancestral pueblo people could get out of the heat and a mesatop ruin of a very large pueblo with many houses.

This trail was so much fun, climbing all over the ladders and into caves and into deeply worn paths in the volcanic rock. Please come along with us and see the ruins!

Join us next time to see Alcove House Santa Fe and the Valles Caldera supervolcano cone! Thank you so much for hiking with us!
