Luminarias

A cliff dwelling’s all aglow

Magic in the night

This is Spruce Tree House. These photos were taken long ago.  1990, I believe. After the year these photos were taken the NPS did not put the luminarias inside the cliff dwellings anymore, but around the edges of the dwellings.  Later they totally did away with all the luminarias except to line the walkways.  To light up Spruce Tree House they used battery powered lanterns.  Now Spruce Tree House is closed, but the NPS will, once a year, light up some of the other cliff dwellings with the lanterns.
