This is one of the houses of Chaco Tribe. They existed in the mid 800 and persisted in 300 years at the Norwest of New Mexico, USA. This artifact is our clue to the past. Looking at their house it is simple and very small. They live in simple life and they don't have wealth accumulation. Unlike our generation, who is lured to the need created by the capitalists. We work hard until we die because we have a lot more to pay and we accumulate things, only to know that when we die, we die equally like them. We cannot bring a single thing we acquired during our existence. Perhaps we will learn the lesson this image is showing to us.

Fantastic photograph. The way the mountains and fence come together in the distance gives it great perspective. You were able to capture the details of the small house and prairie grass.

Rich_Stevenson, we arrive at the place where the park soon to close, I was not able to give ample time for me to compose. However, I see to it that I took bracketed exposure so I can select after all. Million thanks for the appreciation.
