Hovenweep National Monument

I do love these ancient ruins.
We never tread upon them but we set
Our foot upon some reverend history

– John Webster

Hovenweep National Monument, situated on the Utah-Colorado border, is named for a Paiute/Ute word meaning “Deserted Valley”. The stone structures were built by Puebleans who occupied the valley from A.D. 500 to A.D. 1300. An extended drought caused them to desert the area and re-settle along the Rio Grande valley in New Mexico.

The structures are very finely made on irregular stone boulder bases, and have lasted over 700 years.
