That Pueblo I Promised   7 comments

Arizona, pueblo, pueblos, puebloan people, Wupatki National Monument, Flagstaff

Yesterday, I mentioned the pueblos north-east of Flagstaff in the Wupatki National Monument. This rock dwelling is in the ballpark of 800 years old. It’s one of several that can be found in the area. The main pueblo (the Wupatki Pueblo) had over 100 rooms!

This is an easy stop off the main highway heading toward Flagstaff from Page or the east exit from the Grand Canyon. It’s a nice walk, some pretty cool buildings, and a good break from the long drive to Phoenix.

  1. surreal!

  2. I like simple color schemes like this, with a few major colors. The orangeness of the land against the blue and white of the sky is very nice. 🙂

  3. The Pueblo have such an amazing and interesting history, both architectural and cultural. What I l, maike best of this one, Mike, are the subtle curvatures in the composition, mainly how the structure curves and leans back a bit which seem to tie into the curves in the clouds.

  4. I hope you didn’t bite your tongue when you wrote “some pretty cool buildings”–from the feel of the area and inspired by the quality of your treatment of this photograph, I’d need a week to make that drive–actually, the longer the drive, the better!

  5. Beautiful shot of a magical place. Well done!

  6. beautiful and unreal

  7. Nice image! This place is on my list.
