Photo and caption by Barbara Pettibone
This photo was taken shooting up inside a tower at the Native American Cave Dwelling, Mesa Verde. This community was built into the sides of caves -- most levels are accessible only by ladders. The tour guide discussed the cave paintings inside the towers -- I couldn't see them but took this image and lo and behold, there were the cave paintings!
