Most visitors are set on making the trek to Grand Canyon National Park and miss this gorgeous national monument. There are several sites to visit, including this partially restored one at the newly updated visitor’s center. My very favorite is Wukoki, where a wide “front...More

While out seeing the Sunset Crater volcano site we decided to stop and visit at Wupatki - which is a nicely preserved Native American Site Out near near Sunset Crater. The ancient pueblo structure is quite fascinating in its geometric construction. To learn more about...More

We arrived on a windy cloudless day. The lava flows were like they were a month old but are 600 years old. The Navajo Ruins 20 miles north were full of spirits at sunset.

The main reason we came here was the sunset volcano, as we saw loads of ruins across Europe. Anyway, the government financial shutdown ruined both of the above.

I visited this site on a tour to the Grand Canyon. Lots of history to learn here. Plenty of opportunities to take great pictures! My guide provided a lot of information about the monument. Definitely check this out if you are visiting.

Amazing ride through a diverse terrain. We entered from the more northern end. You are able to walk up to the old homes and town centers. As you drive through this National Monument you go from barren land to lava fields and forests. Very interesting.

A few of the reviews I read about this site led me to believe it made a nice driving tour combined with Sunset Volcano. This is not a picturesque or interesting drive AT ALL. The maps indicate pull-out sites, but there were no evident views...More

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.
