Montezuma Castle

Another scorching hot day in Arizona, another adventure to somewhere new. Montezuma Castle National Monument, located just under 100 miles north of Phoenix, Arizona. This might be the most well preserved cliff dwellings in the entire country. At nearly 1,000 years old these ruins were built by the Sinagua (meaning “without water”) people. Abandoned more than 600 years ago, it is carved out of limestone cliffs, and was once home to roughly 50 people and hundreds more who lived below.
