Description

This landscape contains the highest recorded density of prehistoric and historic sites in North America. At The Lowry Ruins, the ancient Great Kiva is 47 feet in diameter and once it had a roof covering it, probably accessed by a ladder through the central opening in the roof or down a series of steps. "Once a sacred place has been established, it is always remains sacred." Tito Naranjo, Santa Clara Pueblo
