  1. I know exactly where the ladder is (I think). It is on the lane coming back around the interior of the pueblo. Well, I don’t know now. Not important. Thanks for the evocation of memories at Acoma.

  2. I used to take my anthro students to Acoma…make them walk up the hill. The church used to have a buffalo hide hanging on the wall. I like the ladder seemingly giving steps to the sky. Sky City? I think so. I really have good memories of the people. Your photograph is priceless.

    • Thank you
      This ladder has been photographed many times, but when I saw the ladder reaching the clouds I knew it was different from all the other photos. The ladder is in the interior of the pueblo so your memory was right.
      I did research on the spirits in the sky, and the meaning of it, that is why I named it
      Spirits In The Sky.
      The ancient ones waited for a message from the spirits in the sky in order to guide their people.
