Wow! What a stop. It's hard to imagine the civilization that lived here 1,000 years ago -- waaay before Columbus and the Europeans arrived. What a vibrant culture -- trading across all of North American -- and there were NO HORSES to get around on. We visited Tuzigoot (about a half hour further west) several years back -- also a great stop. I had no idea that the Americas were so populated -- on a par, in some cases, with cities' sizes in Europe at the time. While this is not a "castle", it is a complex structure that shows the life style of the indigenous folk a thousand years ago.
