If you are in the Flagstaff area, make sure you visit the Wupatki Indian ruins and monument. They show the hallowed grounds of where this once famous Indian tribe once flourished in this remote part of Arizona.

This national monument has several abandoned pueblos on the site. You can enter and explore. In the summer it is hot and treeless, so be prepared with a hat and water.

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.
