Spruce Tree House Indian Ruin, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Spruce Tree House Indian Ruin, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Ladders can be seen emerging from the roofs of underground kivas at this spectacular ruin in Mesa Verde National Park. Kivas were chambers used by Anasazi Indians in ceremonies which are believed to have been religious in nature. This ruin, known as Spruce Tree House, dates back to about 1200 AD. Kivas have been discovered above ground, but the majority were underground like those pictured here.
