Perfect Kiva

Grand Gulch, Bears Ears National Monument, Utah

This was my favorite ruin site I saw during my trip in Grand Gulch - a perfectly preserved kiva set in an overhanging cliff amphitheater. I’d imagine that the overhanging cliff site not only provided safety from attacks from above, but also provided natural shelter from the sun, and occasional rain.
