Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Spruce Tree House

The young man in the red shirt enters a kiva in the same way that Spruce Tree House residents
did in the 1200s. The kiva on the left was photographed by Kim Todd and published in Mesa Verde, The Story Behind the Scenery.

These small cubicles were used for storage.
Even the ancients needed closets in their houses!
