The pueblo ruins of Mesa Verde, Colorado demonstrate the architectural abilities of the Anasazi as well. Built into an overhang of a steep cliff, Mesa Verde is as much a mystery as it is a marvel. Before Mesa Verde, most Anasazi lived on the desert floor. So why then did the Mesa Verde Anasazi labor so hard to create such a hard to reach dwelling? Were they hiding from something...or someone? Did the hunters become the hunted?
