Five Shots: Toozigoot National Monument

Tuzigoot is an ancient village or pueblo built by a culture known as the Sinagua. The pueblo consisted of 110 rooms including second and third story structures.  The Sinagua Indians lived and farmed the Verde Valley, Arizona a thousand years ago. They mysteriously left the area around 1400, but their well-intact condominiums and burial grounds remain. Read more about them HERE . Here are five shots after a day of rain.

  1. They are beautiful pictures. I remember visiting some Sinagua ruins a few years ago at the Wupatki National Monument. It was a very sophisticated settlement with hundreds of rooms. I remember being particularly impressed by the ball court.
