The road to Sky City, Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico

Acoma Pueblo is a village on the 357-foot-high mesa at the end of this road. From a distance it is almost impossible to see, a good protection for centuries from raiding Apaches and Navajo. The Spaniards came in the 1600s looking for the Seven Cities of Cibola, which they hoped were full of gold.
