This set of Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings were grooved into the red-rock hills just east of Manitou Springs off Hwy 24. You’ll see the adobe facades and get a feel for the cool cave interiors with their grain-storage turrets and beamed ceilings in what is a string of half-a-dozen multiple family homes. Talk about an efficient use of space!

The museum has a terrific pottery display downstairs and interesting video displays throughout, including inside the bathroom. It’s not Mesa Verde, but it’ll do if you can’t make it to the Four Corners.
