Sunbeam in Kiva, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Kiva is an Indian word which means "ceremonial room". Kivas were built underground and access was gained by ladders such as the one in this image. This particular Kiva was constructed approximately 800 years old by the Anasazi. The Kiva is normally very dark inside, but I waited until the sun's rays shown directly into the roof opening, illuminating the entire chamber and revealing the beautiful colors within.
