The Manitou Cliff Dwellings have been one of the most popular attractions in the Pikes Peak region for 111 years, but the dwellings themselves — 40 rooms in total — are much, much older than that. These ruins from McElmo Canyon (a whopping 7+ hours from Colorado Springs) are estimated to be somewhere between 800-1,000 years old. (at Manitou Cliff Dwellings Museum)
