This is a beautiful monument with easy access and stupendous ruins. It’s a great side trip out of Flagstaff that can take 2-6 hours, depending on how long you linger and explore. There is a loop drive through the Sunset Crater Monument and exiting through...More

We made the trip to visit the Wupatki National Monument after visiting the Grand Falls. There are a number of cool places to visit in this part of Arizona and Wupatki is one of them. The pueblo ruins are very interesting.

It’s a neat place off the beaten path. Take the extra time to just go see them. Make sure to take your kids so you can always tell them to be grateful for what they have because the people that built these has it rough.

Most visitors are set on making the trek to Grand Canyon National Park and miss this gorgeous national monument. There are several sites to visit, including this partially restored one at the newly updated visitor’s center. My very favorite is Wukoki, where a wide “front...More

We arrived on a windy cloudless day. The lava flows were like they were a month old but are 600 years old. The Navajo Ruins 20 miles north were full of spirits at sunset.

Yes and no. The big cacti don’t grow above certain elevations. You will find the prickly pear cacti though. The bigger plants are found closer to Phoenix.
