Coming upon the site itself was another joy for the spirit. The ceiling is gone leaving tall earth-red walls stretching skyward, and windows casting artistic squares of setting sun. My pup was sniffing every crevice and as intrigued by the whole experience as I was.
We ran into very few people on the trip, but the rangers were available and helpful at each site. I had no idea these mission ruins existed in New Mexico. They are gems of history and I hope to visit again. Having been to Bandalier, Sky City, Valle Caldera, as well as the four corner cliff dwelling sites, I'd say I liked this just as much, possibly even more, and it is less crowded.
