Experience A Legacy! Wupatki! Here in one of the warmest driest places on the Colorado Plateau, with little obvious food or water, people lived and others visited from far and wide. Trade items from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico have been discovered here. Eventually the builders of Wupatki and nearby pueblos moved on, but on trails, and through items left behind, you can let their stories touch you!

Well-maintained National Monument with fascinating Sinagua history. Ruins are great and there is a ballcourt. You can get a guidebook at the Visitor Center.

A pretty easy little trail even if it is a pretty vertical walk. The view from the top of the larger peak is very stunning giving a great view of the canyon lands and the San Francisco Peaks.

This is one of the many gems the southwest has to offer. It was very windy today but well worth the side trip.

A great example of ancient Indian culture. The ruins are just north of Flagstaff, and next to Sunset Crater. Very nice!
