Wupatki National Monument


During our spring trek to Northern Arizona, we stopped by the Wupatki National Monument, a well-known Native American ruins. It is one of several sites preserving pueblos, ancient villages, and was once habited by the Anasazi and Sinagua Indians in the 12th & 13th century.img_0041_zpskfajykry

In the Hopi language, Wupatki Pueblo means ‘big house’ as it was once a home to a community of three hundred people.


The pueblos have a rich distinctive reddish orange color standing boldly in the Arizona sun. img_0013_zpssrsgmqpj

The chilly March weather we visited perfectly accommodated the hot sun.  img_0028_zpssmzakspl

The “ball court” as it is known. I’m guessing that community games and festivities were once located here long long ago.


The popular “blow hole” location that never  fails to captivate visitors and encourage hilarious antics. I sadly admit that I also stuck my head in to feel the gust of rushing air. You can read a fantastic analysis about it here.
