Description

Frijoles Canyon, site of Bandeleir National Monument contains a number of ancestral pueblo homes, kivas (ceremonial structures), rock paintings, and petroglyphs. Some of the dwellings were rock structures built on the canyon floor; others were cavates produced by voids in the volcanic tuff of the canyon wall and carved out further by humans. This portion of the canyon wall, features ruins of the Long House which was at least three stories tall, is depicted with afternoon shadows from the canyon wall on the opposite side creeping up from the bottom.
