Can not wait to go back and spend more time. Was only there for two hours, needed two days to see all there was and to enjoy it.

Combined with Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupakti makes a great Second half of the day even though one could spend an entire day exploring the old dwellings. Just keep in mind that there is very little shade except at the ranger station. And make sure to take the short climb to get on top of the Citadel Pueblo. The view... More

The drive and the short hikes were very interesting. Ranger was very nice and informative. Hard to believe that anyone could survive there. Such a hard life. Makes us appreciate what we have. Everything was very well organized.

We were headed to the Grand Canyon and made a quick stop here. It is interesting to see Pueblo construction. This monument is in the middle of nowhere. There is evidence that this was a stopping point for many different tribes as moved through this area. Researchers believe that Zuni and Hopi tribes stayed in the area and became a... More

Viewing the various ruins in Wupatki NM is an amazing trip back into time. The variety of dwellings and artefacts available to view and explore provides a cornucopia of things about which to ponder: who these people were, why they came there in the first place, what caused them to abandon their dwellings, how they lived, and so on. The... More

close to Flagstaff. It was still very cold and windy with some snow and it was early in May. You need just abut 30 minutes to see this nice place.

I was so amazed at how well preserved the pueblos were at this place. I loved the information provided at each site as well. It really gave a full picture of the people who had once roamed this land. A fantastic place to take photos as well!

This place was actually pretty fascinating. I'd driven by here many times, but had never stopped. I was spending a couple nights in Flagstaff, so thought I'd drive out and check it out. It was clouding in Flagstaff all day, but getting just this far out, it was a nice sunny day. The Pueblo dwellings were very interesting and you... More

These ruins have been greatly preserved. Wonderful to see. Drove through the Sun Canyon volcano area also. Amazing.

This was a surprise as the dwellings were beautifully preserved and the hikes were outstanding. The facilities were above average and comparable to Mesa Verde, except they were free standing rather than built into cliffs. A beautiful drive and fantastic scenery.
