Imagine trying to reach the third floor of your apartment building without the use of stairs or an elevator. Now try carrying groceries with you. This is exactly what the Fremont Indians did many years ago.

The structures located in these cliffs were used by the Fremont culture as granaries between 1050 to 1200 A.D. The Fremont were a hunting and gathering soiety who supplemented that way of life by growing corn, beans, and squash.
