You may want to discuss with your students how climate factors -- precipitation, in this case -- affect the distribution of plant and animal species.

Panorama Viewing: Click the "View Panorama" button to see an interactive panorama. Click and drag your mouse in any direction to view other parts of the scene; press the Shift key to zoom in to see details and press Ctrl to zoom out.
We recommend using the Deval VR viewer for seeing panoramas that do NOT have sound and the QuickTime viewer for panoramas WITH sound.

This part of SW Colorado is sufficiently warm and dry that it cannot support much vegetation, although as nearby ruins indicate, in past centuries the climate allowed people to inhabit this location.
