Aztec Ruins

I have long been fascinated by the ancient cultures of the Southwest, so I was thrilled to have the chance to visit the Aztec Ruins National Monument. I immediately felt this was a very special place. What a fascinating architecture.  Three foot thick walls and tightly woven ceilings, over 900 years old. What is left is  only the bottom floor of what had been 3 or 4 stories high… well it was amazing. The Great Kiva had been restored in the 1930’s, the park service no longer does restoration, but preservation only, so I was glad to be able to see both. It gave me a deeper appreciation of the knowledge of these people. If you’d like to know more about this sacred place visit the park website. http://www.nps.gov/azru/index.htm
