Balcony House, Mesa Verde National Park

 
Balcony House is the most challenging cliff dwelling tour at Mesa Verde but it is also the most intimate. Named after the remnants of a dwelling balcony, this small site provides insight to Anasazi community life. The balconies and rooftops, made of logs rather than adobe, were a place of work and play. Kivas, built below ground, were an important gathering place for each family clan and their flat rooftops functioned much like our town squares.
