The Nankoweap Granaries are high up at the base of the cliffs.  One thousand years ago, Indians stored their grain here, to keep out rats and other varmints.  It is high, the climate is dry, it's sheltered by overhangs from rain, and only gets about 30 minutes of sun any day of the year.  Perfect for maximizing storage of your valuable food!
