We drove through wupatki and sunset crater in an afternoon. Probably took us 2-3 hours to drive through the park. Very neat because you can walk through some Indian ruins. Bring water. Sunset crater area had nice views of volcanic rock formations.

The mere fact that you are able to walk around and INTO these ruins - its quite amazing. The fact that these were built by hand gives you quite the reality check. Very educational and my 2 little girls loved it.

It was completely empty when we arrived. The sound of silence is wonderful.

Ruins, gorgeous landscapes, and walking paths. What more could one ask for?

As you walk around these amazing ruins, remember that all of this was built by a stone age people. They had no metal tools, no draft animals, no wheeled vehicles. They didn't make war on their neighbors, so they didn't take slaves. They lived and farmed in peace, and created palaces, not for kings or priests, but for themselves -- built by the people, for the people. A thousand years ago in Europe, serfs built fortified castles -- because men with swords would otherwise kill them. At the same time, in the Toltec Empire to the south, captive slaves built pyramids and then were murdered by the bloodthirsty priests. But here, structures just as grand and beautiful were built without coercion, by an industrious and organized society which we know little about. Look and wonder, but don't skip the outlying houses, particularly the haunting and beautiful Wukoki, just a few miles away.
