Montezuma Castle. The structure pre-dates the arrival of Europeans in the Americas. We stamped our NPS passport and checked out the exhibits indoors before making our way to the trail. Despite the weather, the center was really busy.

20 November 2016 One Last Day in Arizona
It was the last day in Arizona for us and our journey for the day was to travel from Flagstaff back to the hotel in Phoenix. We started our day exploring a bit of the desert areas off I17 with Ali making certain we didn't stray too far from the highway. There were plenty of caches listed but we had more than a few unsuccessful hunts on the day. Shooting things and leaving trash in the desert seem to be the main hobbies for some visitors. Navigating the terrain means keeping your eyes open for rattlesnakes and broken bottles left behind from the shooting. While looking for the hazards, there is a lot of desert life to observe.
