This was a nice adventure but it was not super memorable. If you're short on time I would recommend you skip this site. Walnut Canyon Monument was definately worth the time to view interesting Indian relics. I loved Walnut Canyon!!!

The levels of preservation and interpretation here are outstanding! I only Intend to say by my title that the place is evocative: it makes me wonder if the land was more moist when this village was inhabited and what sorts of hardships were endured. It is only one of a number of settlements in this immediate area. Why did they... More

The Wupatki National was a nice stop. It was not an easy, quick and on the way to somewhere. There are too many very good places to visit while in the area. If you have extra time, then maybe add it too your itinerary.

We stopped here on our way to the Grand Canyon from Sedona (a recommendation from the hotel concierge). We weren't sure if it was worth the stop at first, but it ended up being one of favorite parts of the trip! We were one of the first people at the Wupatki Pueblo for the day, which was great because we... More

Start at Sunset Crater and take the loop and spend a few hours stepping back in time. This is a wonderful place to learn about how early native Americans lived and survived in the high desert of Arizona. Be sure to stop at the visitor center and learn about their culture and the surrounding area. Take a walk out to... More

We accessed this monument after first visiting Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. The first ruin we came upon was the Wukoki Pueblo and it was amazing. You get to it by walking down a pretty short and flat trail. The structure is still quite intact and you can climb in and around it. We even found a few pieces of... More

Make sure you take the laminated information packet from the welcome center which leads you on a self guided tour. This park was viewed in conjunction with the Sunset Crater and we recommend both! Learning how people lived and used the land was great. The views are beautiful and the grounds were easy to hike but more expansive than originally... More

There was an extensive ruin of a Native American village near the visitors center. It was quite large with ceremonial ball courts and a surprising amount still intact. You can walk around the ruins and imagine what it might look like when inhabited. This was a bit different than other national parks.

We really enjoyed visiting Wupatki. The ruins were fantastic. Takes one back 1000 years. Grows one's appreciation for what the Native Americans accomplished and how they lived. Well worth the drive.
