Sedona, AZ: Cliff Dwellings

We had originally scheduled to go hot air ballooning, but the winds were too strong and we couldn't go so we signed up for a second Pink Jeep Tour since the first was so much fun.  On this tour we went to visit a 700 year old Sinaguan cliff dwelling that was about a half a mile pleasant walk from the entrance of the National Park.  We got to see many beautiful petroglyphs and pictographs that were hundreds of years old etched and painted on the cliff's walls.  There was also some modern graffiti, which was kind of sad to see, but also a little interesting because the ancient drawings are really just ancient graffiti.   The park officials don't see it that way though and may be closing off the ruins to preserve them so go see them before they close them off!
