Camp Verde, AZ (Dec 2015 & Jan. 2016)
We found many things to explore in and around Camp Verde including Indian Ruins and petroglyphs.
Tuzigoot National Monument near Cottonwood.
Singua Indians built this pueblo on a mound surrounded by fertile soil where they grew food for survival.
|They had quite the panoramic view from the top most likely to watch for intruders and keep an eye on their crops. Only the lower foundations remain, they had roofs of some sort, no doors, it's believed they entered through the top using ladders.|
A trantula on our hiking trail. They are actually
quite docil and move rather slow
We enjoyed fall in Camp Verde, hard to believe it was December.
After driving several miles on a jeep trail we arrived at the Trailhead for Fossil Springs
on the Verde River. It was a beautiful day for hiking.
|Beautiful views on Mingus Mountain.|
Our wonderful adventure continues.
