Devil's Chasm
 
 
I can't think of any other ruin in my book I like more than the cliff dwelling in the Devil's Chasm. It's in a beautiful area, it's very challenging to reach, and it's in an amazing state of preservation. The ruin is one of many dwellings built in the Cherry Creek area of the Sierra Ancha about 700 years ago by the Anchan culture.
