Sunset Crater & Wupatki National Monuments

After packing up camp we cross the highway and take the loop through Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments.




We stop at the visitor center for Sunset Crater. There is FREE COFFEE! We walked around looking at the photography books
enjoying our FREE COFFEE and FREE INSPIRATION!

Diek is up for a hike, so we decide on the short, but steep hike up Lennox Crater.




The viola-tor was like a gazelle bouncing up the steep trail. I hike often, but didn't realize how out of shape I was until
I tried keeping up with him. The conversation up the volcanic crater was mostly one-sided as I gasped for oxygen.




Back on the bikes. I can keep up here.

We stop at Wupatki NM to see the ruins.














Viola-tor poses on the ancient ball court.













Someone was in a hurry to see the Grand Canyon.
