"This one looked like a prehistoric condo complex," says Times reader "BoniPeluso," who shot this photo of Spruce Tree House in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Let's hope homeowners' association fees were a little more reasonable in those days.

Spruce Tree House is among 600 cliff dwellings in the national park, whose Spanish name translates as "green table" in English. Mesa Verde is home to more than 4,000 known archaeological sites, some once inhabited by ancestors of the Pueblo people from about AD 600 to 1300.
