Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

Plaza B - Caracol. This area is called the Caana complex, or "Sky Place". There is speculation that the rooms on the very top were the royal family's residendial chambers. The rooms on the middle level each have a wide front entrance, and often a wide U-shaped bench. These rooms were designed for a specific purpose. Perhaps they were a seating area to watch the plaza, like sky-boxes in today's sports arenas, or maybe they were a place to display prisoners, or royalty, to the people below.
