Here are some great pictures we took while on our walking tour of Montezuma Castle National Monument. Here a prehistoric culture flourished in the Verde Valley for thousands of years. They were advanced in agriculture and they were a great influence to the neighboring cultures- the Hohokam to the south and the Northern Sinagua to the north. These large pueblos are built on hill tops and inside cliffs. They consist of many levels with terraces overlooking their fields and the major streams where they got their water for drinking and watering their crops. I could go on and on with the story of these unique cliff dwellers. It’s just so interesting. Even the trees are breath taking. I could not stop taking pictures of them. You really need to see this place in person to get the full effect. Pictures DO NOT do this place justice.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot… On the way down to the car I spotted this Old Timer. LOL
Until next time y’all… Happy Trails and Safe Travels!
