This is a relatively recent photograph of the Cliff Dweller. The wood floor is no longer there. It shows the cave is not very deep, but did provide shelter for the Swaseys and others. It is about six to eight feet deep and twelve feet wide. The Swaseys built a log floor which stood about three feet above the ground. They slept on this floor. The Swaseys were in the area in 1875, but the Cliff Dweller was first used by Indians. Pottery and arrowheads were found in the Cliff Dweller by these early livestock men. Joe's son Royal Swasey took his bride Eva to the Cliff Dweller for a romantic honeymoon, according to Royal's son Monte. "It had a floor, natural refrigerator and other desert luxuries."
