"Sit on the deck swing while you view the colorful layers of the McElmo Canyon cliffs and an unending parade of wildlife - deer, fox, song birds, hummingbirds, chipmunks, lizards, and squirrels. There are ancient ruins within sight, too, right from the deck. This homey, spacious cabin is a perfect home base for visiting many National Parks, National Monuments, and other attractions within driving distance of the Four Corners area. "Trail of the Ancients" and "Hovenweep National Monument" are both excellent places for viewing ruins and scenery, and are close by. Also, take the short drive to Dolores, CO to visit to the Anasazi Heritage Center museum and hike the easy trail up to Puebloan ruins with captivating views. At night after a day of touring or relaxing, spend some time outside taking in the velvet black sky pierced with a bazillion silver stars, then open the windows of your bedroom for a cool breeze of pure country air, and let the crickets' chorus sing you to sleep. We have never had such a peaceful, relaxing, and experience-filled vacation as we did staying at this delightfully decorated, fully equipped, and oh-so-comfy McElmo Canyon cabin this summer."
