Your eyes will see only amazing elegance with a raw beauty that has lasted for over two thousand years. These are the boulders and cliffs that have helped keep the mysteries of the lost city hidden for centuries.
These boulders are like the canvas that a master painter has spent hours designing. Could any paintbrush ever touch the tones and uniqueness of the spectacular cliffs and boulders that were placed and painted by nature itself? Amazing sandstone carved with the skill of the masters. The rain and wind has helped with the sanding and buffering of these astonishing facades. The sand that has built up over the years of driving winds keep the main city hidden. And last, but not least, the earthquakes helped with the placement of the boulders which guard the secrets of the "Rose City."
