A 100 room ruin just outside of Cottonwood, AZ.  North of Phoenix by two hours or west of Sedona by half hour.  The Sinagua stayed here between 1000 and 1450.  They built this high on a hill in a bowl of mountains.  The Verde River cuts along side to provide year round water.  The visitor center was loaded with artifacts from on site.  The ruin was explored in the 1930’s.
