Throughout this whole trip, we were trying to figure out how people could live a primitive lifestyle in the desert. The visitors center and some of the stops along the way helped answer these questions. We really enjoyed being able to see some of the...More

This is an interesting place to visit to see how some of the Indians lived. It isn't something I would go out of my way to see or spend a lot of time at, but still interesting.

An interesting insight into the Native American history in the area. Nice to learn about and see ruins more than 800 years old in the US. Worth spending some time along the way.

In the middle of the desert this site is well whoa detour if you are planning a trip along the south rim of the Grand Canyon in a westerly direction. There is a good interpretation centre and the remains of the pueblo are well preserved.

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.
