Additional Details:
Acoma "the City in the Sky" is located in beautiful valley 7000 feet above the sea, upon the top of a mesa which itself is 357 feet above the floor of the valley. It is the "home of half a town and quaint lives and of half a thousand years romance." The pueblo is really three giant buildings running east and west a thousand feet and rising forty feet high. Each building is several hundred feet long but cut by cross walls into seperate little homes.
