Harlan Shattuck, Mesa Verde

The Cliff Palace of the great cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park, Co is deftly rendered here in soft orange and brown fall colors. The multistoried buildings below are dwarfed in this the largest cliff dwelling in North America. Built of sandstone, mortar and wooden beams, many of the circular kiva structures are visible.
