As I had written in a previous posting, we had seen the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde and were ready to see something different regarding the Ancient Puebloans. We found that at Chimney Rock, which was declared a national monument in 2012 by President Obama. Chimney Rock is in the background of the picture, Companion Rock in the foreground.
Also at that pit house was a recipe for cornbread which these ancient people ate. I found it a bit strange, but maybe I should try the recipe! Boiling water was added to blue cornmeal and juniper ash, this was made into a loaf and baked. I sure wonder what juniper ash adds to the taste of that cornbread.
