The Visitors Center was very good and had some excellent displays. We then walked out amongst the ruins and could get u,,beside the multi story ruin. There were excellent story boards explaining the ruins and life of the ancient peoples.

It is fascinating to learn how the ancient cultures managed water and raised crops. The buildings they constructed without the aid of modern tools and devices is mind boggling. The park staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. About two hours is all that...More
