The logic for the siting of the Cliff Palace by the Ancestral Puebloans is clear in this winter view. Normally crowded with visitors, on this day the structures lie silent and deserted but well shielded from the deep snow by the enormous overhang. The only way to reach this vantage point in the winter is by ski or snowshoe.
