Montezuma's Castle

I wonder what it must have been like to be one of the inhabitants of this area 800 or 1000 years ago? This cliff dwelling and its neighbors provided a home for a hundred or so people. A river runs below the cliff which allowed them to farm the area and they probably were in contact with a small community a couple miles away called "Montezuma's Well" that even had some irrigation ditches. Life must have been a challenge in those days. This image was taken at 55mm focal length with an exposure of 1/640 seconds at f/8, ISO 100.
