Gila Valley Cliff Dwellings National Monument {New Mexico}

A few years ago I found myself in New Mexico and it didn’t take long to realize why it’s called ‘The Land of Enchantment’. I ventured out one day to see the Gila Valley Cliff Dwellings and it was such a humbling experience. To see homes carved into the face of the rock where dozens of families would share such a small space. The people worked together and protected each other. To see see their home and some of the markings and artifacts left behind was incredible.

{Know if you go: it is quite a drive down some winding roads to get there so be sure to have a good GPS so you don’t get lost}
