We looked at many of them. This was our favorite

Spruce Tree House cliff dwelling.

The circular area with the ladder passing down through a square hole is called a Kiva. The Kiva is a room which was dug underground about six feet and used for a meeting place.

We were allowed to enter one of the Kivas.

Mom decided to look at a Kiva which no longer had a roof.
