Great National Park. So glad the effort was made to preserve Native American history. This park was enjoyed by our kids & 4 y/o granddaughter who was inspired to create her own mini version of Indian ruins with rocks, sand, pine cones, etc.

Easy to get to, and even easier to spend a lot of time here. Take the Island Trail, you won't be sorry. Yes, there are over 240 steps included on this trail, but it's so worth it. To be able to see the cliff dwellings is an amazing experience.

Walnut Canyon is a wonderful site, and the Walnut Canyon Drive is nice but not as amazing as the drives to and thru Sedona and the Grand Canyon.
