NileGuide Expert Says:
Eerie yet calming silence holds this timeless place in a contemplative solitude. You can almost hear the voices and laughter of those who lived here centuries before...and they were regular people just like you and me.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Way off the beaten path, bring plenty of water, food, and anything you'd need to get yourself in and out safely. You also drive through and past private property en route; please be respectful.
- Hovenweep National Monument protects six prehistoric, Puebloan-era villages spread over a twenty-mile expanse of mesa tops and canyons along the Utah-Colorado border. Multi-storied towers perched on canyon rims and balanced on boulders lead visitors to marvel at the skill and motivation of their builders. Hovenweep is noted for its solitude and undeveloped, natural character.
