Hovenweep National Monument!

Hovenweep National Monument
What is it? Hovenweep National Monument protects six Ancestral Puebloan villages built on the verge of their disappearance from the area!
What makes it beautiful? It’s the delicate balance of these ancient structures that makes them stand out! Tall towers and “castles” are still perched here on the edge of a steep canyon, having withstood over 700 years of natural forces! They have made incredible use of their surroundings, even building a fortress into a huge eroded boulder hanging in the middle of the canyon wall! Together, they stand as sentinels over a time that will never be again and will leave you astonished with wonder!
