Santa Clara Pueblo reopens Puye Cliffs for tours

-A A +A

SANTA CLARA, N.M. (AP) — The Santa Clara Pueblo has reopened its Puye (POO'-yee) Cliff Dwellings.

KRQE-TV reports that the pueblo reopened the historic site this weekend after it spent most of the summer keeping uncharred land free of flash flooding.

The Santa Clara Pueblo is back giving tours and teaching visitors about the old ruins after four months.

Around 17,000 acres of the Santa Clara Pueblo Reservation were devoured in the massive Las Conchas fire this summer that destroyed dozens of homes and at one point, threatened the town of Los Alamos.

The flames finally stopped about a mile away from the cliff dwellings.

The cliff dwellings are open to tours seven days a week.
