Tyuonyi Pueblo, New Mexico by James Aitcheson

Tyuonyi Pueblo, New Mexico

The remains of Tyuonyi Pueblo in Frijoles Canyon, New Mexico. Some of these buildings once rose three stories tall; now even the grass challenges them for height. Built between the twelfth and the fifteenth centuries, the pueblo was abandoned by 1600, probably as a result of drought and environmental stress.
