The description states:

148 – ROCK CLIFFS AND FOOT TRAIL AT

ACOMA, “THE SKY CITY”

SOUTH OF HIGHWAY U.S. 66,

NEAR LAGUNA, N. M.

Coma Pueblo, a seventy acre Mesa, 350 feet above the Plains is the oldest continuously inhabited place in the United States. This view shows the foot trail ascending to the village, the only access to the Plateau and gives an idea of the steep formation of the Gibraltar Rock.
