|Facility:||Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument|
|Description:||The park offers a glimpses of the homes and lives of Indians who lived there from the late 1270s through the early 1300s. The surroundings probably look today very much like they did when the cliff dwellings were inhabited. Archelogists have identified 46 rooms at the Gila Cliff Dwellings.
Activities in the Monument include bird watching, fishing, hiking, interpretive programs, nature walks, stargazing, and wildlife viewing. The Junior Ranger Program is a good way for kids to get a basic understanding of the history of the area.
