Some of the Anasazi Indians who made this canyon their home lived in caves and cliff dwellings along the canyon walls, not far from Tyuonyi Pueblo on the canyon floor.  The craggy cliffs are riddled with small caves composed of a relatively easily excavated volcanic material called "tuff".  The Indians enlarged and adapted many of them into rooms for living or storage.  Photo taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
