Kiva at Spruce Tree House in Mesa Verde National Park

 has a kiva that has had the roof reconstructed.
It is possible to climb the ladder down into the kiva to experience
the environment.
It felt quite cozy.
 Below, an image of the reconstructed kiva roof.




 Here I am climbing out.  Interesting how there are many layers of heavy clay packed over the pole ceiling.

Hmmmm.... I think I would feel just a little confined in there! But it's great that you were able to see it as it would have been originally.
