Grand Canyon National Park

Arizona

Travelers along the narrow northeast section of the Grand Canyon National Park that borders the Colorado River will be rewarded with a view of these indigenous cliff ruins. Built between 1,000 and 1,500 years ago by the Anasazi Indians, these cave dwellings are believed to have been granaries, used to store crops such as corn and beans. You can spot them where Nankoweap Creek meets the Colorado River as it flows toward Marble Canyon. And in the right light, the ruins appear to glow from within.
