I was sifting through photos of our 50 day summer road trip the other day and came across some shots of our visit to the Montezuma Castle National Monument in Arizona. I had never shared these shots because they were not part of one of our designated stops, and were instead just part of a side trip that we made. On our trip, everything was planned out, but every once in a while, a sign on the side of the road caught our eye, and we made a detour for a few hours to explore a unique place. It’s also how we wound up in Tupelo, MS. the birthplace of Elvis, and the Coral Pink Sand Dunes for some sand sledding. Anyway, these pictures brought back great memories and I wanted to share.
While there, don’t forget to visit the museum inside the visitor’s center for a complete walk through the history of the area and its people. Children can participate in the Junior Ranger Program, and picnic areas are available. Adult entry is $5, but children 16 and under are free and your fee is good for entrance up to 7 days.
Have you been to see Montezuma’s Castle?
