We visited this site not knowing what to expect and were blown away with what is here. The landscape here is otherworldly. The lava formations and lava fields are like nothing I have ever seen. There is a great walk around the lava features. Very...More
We unexpectedly had a little extra time in our vacation day so we headed out to Sunset Crater to hike the Lava Trail. Very easy trail to hike and our boys loved it. It was very windy and raining lightly so we got pelted. With...More
We went to this Monument primarily because its cost was packaged with that of the Wupatki Ruins, which we definitely wanted to see. I did not expect alot based on the pictures in local brochures, but boy did I underestimate! This ended up being one...More

Good question! 10 year old boys will LOVE this! As far as I know there are not any tours available, and if there were, you would be throwing your money away. I did this trip going to the Grand Canyon and entering the GCNP... More
Good question! 10 year old boys will LOVE this! As far as I know there are not any tours available, and if there were, you would be throwing your money away. I did this trip going to the Grand Canyon and entering the GCNP from the east. It may take an hour if you get out and explore, and of course you will want to. There is a little hike you can take from the paved parking lot which is quick and easy. Also, this attraction is also combined with Wupatki National Monument. Go to this for sure as you can actually go into three or four ancient pueblos. I imagine before the 10 years are grown, these areas will be roped off; but for now you have the run of the ruins without anyone around. Warning is that there is a ranger station, but they do not offer water so take a cooler with you!
