The Wupatki National Monument is an area with numerous pueblos in north-central Arizona. The elevation varies around 5000-5400 feet. These villages are around 800 years old, left by Anasazi and Sinagua families, who were traders and farmers. You can walk around some of the stark red rock and brick ruins. This stretch of buildings lies between the painted desert to the east, the San Francisco Peaks and Sunset Crater Volcano to the southwest, and the Grand Canyon to the northwest. The views on are unique and dramatic in this high desert area, just driving to this place from any direction gives you an idea of how diverse the terrain is in northern Arizona. Here are a few photos from various visits. Look at that bright sky, can you imagine what the night sky must have been like 800 years ago?
