Montezuma Castle National Monument

September 21, 2016 Paul Groves

This is an ancient dwelling over 800 years old. The inhabitants chose to build in a cliff side for protection. The model that shows daily life in the dwelling was constructed by Rangers when the actual dwelling was closed to visitors in the 1920’s. Inhabitants used sycamore trees in their construction and for ladders. The tree has an interesting-looking bark. This monument is located between Phoenix and Flagstaff, Arizona
