Yes, sorry, this is not art but some photography from yesterday's trip with some family to Bandelier National Monument. Absolutely gorgeous place. Wish we could have looked around more, but we got lost on the way there and didn't have as much time as we had hoped. The person in the middle is some tourist from South Carolina that was seeing the inside of one of the restored caves.
This is a Native American ruins, I believe they lived here around.. 1200-1500? I forgot to bring a guidebook from the visitor center. During the Great Depression era, the government employed 3 million out-of-work men to restore places like this across America. There was a path that we walked on, allowing us to see where they lived in the soft rock caves (to stay out of the freaking sun, we were melting) and their petroglyphs. There was also a bat cave, but since it wasn't dusk, they didn't show themselves at all.
This was a 2 hour drive from where I live. (1 and a half hours if you have an SUV XD)
It's amazing the places you can see on a small budget. Gas + picnic + walking stick + beautiful national monument = priceless.
