Crowning a desert hilltop is an ancient pueblo. A child scans the desert landscape for the arrival of traders. What riches will they bring? What stories will they tell? From the rooftop of the Tuzigoot pueblo it is easy to imagine such a moment. The pueblo shows us this ancient village built by the Sinagua people. They were farmers and artists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles.
Cost was $10– or free of charge if you also purchased entrance to the Montezuma Nat Park. Steep walks with an awesome view from the top. One can tour site in 30 min—one hour if you stop to smell the roses!
We really enjoyed this place. You can actually walk right up and through this monument. Our 13 yo had fun exploring the different rooms. The staff was friendly and they have some really yummy prickly pear gummy bears.
Wonderful Heritage site, and small museum
It was neat to see.
