The Citadel photo was captured by LLDM last July 2017.
"It was a remarkable achievement, to use primitive mortar and local stones to build the walls above you straight up from the edge of the top of the rock".
"The Citadel" is the modern name given to this ruin because of its location, but archeologists wonder why the Anasazi often built in high, hard-to-get-at places. Some theories say it was defensive. Others say it was to avoid building on croplands, or for sun and breeze. Or was it more simple? Today we often build on hilltops because it is dramatic and beautiful".
