Vacation Day 2 – Tuzigoot & Oak Creek Canyon

I forgot to backtrack, so here is Day 2 of my trip. Day 1 we saw Montezuma Castle and Well, where cliff dwellers lived. We stayed overnight in gorgeous Sedona. The next day we backtracked a bit so we could catch Tuzigoot, another site with ruins. These were on top of a hill and had a gorgeous view! These dwellings had no doors, and were accessed by holes in the ceiling and ladders.

You could climb around in them, they had stairs installed. Here is the inside:
