Another Day In The Past

The pre-history of the Verde Valley is a never ending attraction...

Sunday morning saw us at the cliff dwellings and petroglyphs at the  Honanki Heritage Site, another home to the Sinagua people from 1150-1350 CE. We passed last Sunday's Palatki Heritage Site on the way in.

On Sunday afternoon we ascended Sacred Mountain north of Camp Verde.  Atop the mesa we saw the remains of a 50-60 room pueblo.  The V-Bar-Heritage Site we visited last weekend is a mile or so to the northwest.

Unlike cliff dwellings, the Sinagua pueblos have had no protection from the elements.
