After an eye-opening experience I had in 2014, I created the ultimate bucket list of amazing Arizona wonders I have to visit and started checking them off.
South Mountain Park in Phoenix is home to thousands of petroglyphs left behind primarily by people of the Hohokam culture. Discover where you can see them in this post.
Compared to many national parks that feature smooth asphalt roads with large parking lots and visitor centers,Mindeleff Cavates ruins are relatively inaccessible. That may be a good thing because the ancient dwelling site is very well preserved.
No experience embodies the spirit of the American Southwest better than visiting a cliff dwelling formerly inhabit by native people. Few are as easily accessible or well preserved as the two at beautiful Tonto National Monument near Roosevelt, AZ.
Spend an hour walking around the Pueblo Grande Museum and you’ll quickly appreciate how the ancestral Hohokham Indians were able to thrive in the hot desert region now known as Phoenix.
Few experiences can help you feel the spirit of the Southwest like exploring one of the many ancient dwelling sites dotted around Arizona. Tuzigoot National Monument, a couple hours’ drive north of Phoenix, is a wonderfully restored geological wonder.
