The cliffs near the monument were pretty, craggy, cracked, colored, and veined.
Quite inappropriately named, Montezuma’s Castle is really a Sinagua Indian cliff village. We decided to take a quick trip away from Prescott to check out this site on Sunday morning. It was a little warmer at the monument than in Prescott, but we endured the heat.
The park area is well worth the entry fee of $5.
We walked the short trail and viewed both the more intact dwelling and a less intact cliff dwelling further on.
The Arizona Sycamore trees were gorgeous, even with the heat and drought.
