There isn't a lot to see here but it's just off of the road so you might was well stop. It is cool to see the old dwellings. You won't spend much time here, maybe 15-20 minutes.

Wow....the drive from Page to cliff dwellers is amazing. Plan to go in the evening when you can see orange color on the canyons Simple spectacular. The cliff dweller is also good. We enjoyed the abrupt shaped rocks.

We stopped here when driving along the 89A. It is amazing how the cliff dwellers have utilised the fallen boulders to use as shelter. A very scenic spot, rich red colours of the boulders. Local trinkets were on sale at the roadside stall.

We stopped here today to take a look at the ruins of the old home. It's always interesting to walk through. My teams also enjoyed climbing up the rocks and hiding in the nooks and holes. There were also two ladies selling Navajo jewelry. They've...More
