Wupatki National Monument

Wupatki National Monument is just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona off of US 89.  I have lived in Arizona my entire life and am just now finding out about some of these gems.  Wupatki was established to preserve the Citadel and Wupatki pueblos and back in its day this was a happenin’ place.  We were here on a school trip and not only was I impressed, but the kids all seemed to enjoy the monument.
