Yet another really worthwhile attraction just outside of Flagstaff. As you descend the steps you will think about the trip back up. You will be descending back in tine a you go down. The ruins are worthwhile, but what strikes you is how impossibly difficult daily life must have been for these people. Imagine having to climb this canyon without steps, perhaps multiple times a day, going up or down for water, or food or to tend their crops. Sure makes our lives seem soft.
