False Kiva Indian Ruin in Alcove, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

False Kiva Indian Ruin in Alcove, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

This Indian ruin with its breathtaking view of Canyonlands can only be reached by hiking a somewhat treacherous unmarked trail. The last part of the hike involves an exhilarating scramble down the face of a steep talus slope, followed by an equally steep ascent back up the slope and into the cave. The view that unfolded before me as I entered the cave made me immediately forget my fears. This ruin was built circa 1200 AD by the Pueblo Indians. The view is simply indescribable.
