Wupatki National Monument

About 30 miles north of Sunset Crater are ancient puebloan dwellings.  Built nearly 1000 years ago it is amazing that so many of the walls are still standing.  The stone work is magnificant. The lines of the walls are beautiful.

It is rugged country and was dry when the inhabitants lived here.  The Navaho's still live just north of here.  I mentioned the wind earlier.  The picture below is the back side of the dust storm blowing out over the Navaho Nation. We were glad to be up wind.
