cliff dwellers


Driving up through 
Northern Arizona 


You know you’re almost there 
when you see the Cliff Dwellers
 


























Indigenous peoples 
Once lived in these boulders
And up in the Vermilion Cliffs 

Most of the Tribesmen 
Built Hogans or Pit Dwellings. 
Just the rocks remain. 


Coffee and previously 
downloaded YouTube videos. 
Wearing my fuzzy Eddie Bauer 
Pseudo moccasins. 

Sitting in a little craftsman
Nostalgic fishing lodge. 


Getting tan the Arizona way 

10 years ago I never dreamed
My life would be where I am today. 
Basically the same, 
But I seem to understand it
On a much deeper level.

I think vacations help with that.
