Kiva Interior

Grand Gulch, Bears Ears National Monument, Utah

Supposedly this kiva was discovered intact in the 1890s, but by the 1970s the roof was starting to collapse. Restoration efforts were undertaken to reinforce the roof so now you can go down inside. It felt calm, cool, and comfortable in there, and interestingly it smelled really good too! Photo © copyright by Jack Brauer.
