Beyond the Crowds: Hovenweep National Monument

  • Aired: 04/26/2016

  • Rating: NR
The first thing you notice when you hike the trails at Hovenweep National Monument is how amazing the ancient Pueblo structures are. The second thing you notice is the solitude – you can hear the wind through the sage and the birds echoing off the canyon walls. This area was once home to more than 2,500 people in 900 A.D. The name “Hovenweep” is a Ute word meaning “deserted valley”.
