Camping with the Ancients.
Camera: K3 Photo Location: Homolovi SP, Arizona

This is the land of the ancient Anasazi Indians who farmed and lived off of the land for many centuries. We've got the place to ourselves, imagining what their life must of been years ago.

You've done it again, Bob. Thirty years ago I got myself to the University of Arizona on a scholarship. Practical considerations had me studying management. But my first love was prehistory and I was out in the Anasazi country/Navajo lands at every opportunity. These shots bring back the feeling. Probably the most intense feeling I ever had was standing in the Great Kiva in Chaco Canyon at sunset. You could feel the presence of the ancients there. Enjoy your stay.

Fascinating, brother Bob. You've got both solitude and ghosts of ancient peoples around you.

Especially 2,000 years ago, Daacon. :-)

Nicely done, Bob!

Probably not even one bar worse than my present carrier, you know, the ones who keep locking me into 2 year contracts which I foolishly keep signing up for.

Interesting shots!

Walking around some of the ruins we found painted pieces of pottery, to think they were 1000 years old it was quite a find. Chaco Canyon is a very special place and I know what you mean about that "feeling".

I was amazed that I got a signal for my wifi out in this area but it did take about 5 minutes to load the photos. Forget about cell service though. Thanks for the comments.
