Weekly Photo Challenge “In the Earth there is Shelter”

Chaco 1These photos were shot in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico.  Chaco Canyon was an ancient spiritual gathering site for tribes in the Southwestern US.  I was struck by how integrated these ancient people were with the earth, to the point their very shelter was made of bricks and stones from the ground beneath their feet.

  1. I have been there many moons ago. Thanks for the memories. I have read this site is at risk of mining, so I hope it remains protected. Native sites are really America’s best time capsules in the land of the disposable.
