Chaco Culture Nat'l Hist. Park - Pueblo Bonito Overlook
New Mexico

This overlook, created by the National Park Service, has stair access and a sign giving an overview of Pueblo Bonito. The big rocks, one of which serves as the platform, are actually fragments of a large rock that was once part of the cliff side. "Threatening Rock", which was discovered by the park service in 1901, eventually came crashing down on January 22, 1941, destroying several rooms of Pueblo Bonito.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
