Long before we were here, the Ancestral Pueblo people called this place home. From around 1150 to 1550 CE, these native people lived and thrived in the place that is now Bandelier National Monument, before they were forced to move on due to drought. Luckily, they left behind cliff dwelling, petroglyphs, kivas, and other clues that help us learn about them.
Here’s a hike that takes you right into the heart of the ruins, and you’ll never forget it.
