Next, we went several miles further on the National Monument road to get to the Wupatki National Monument, where we took a look at two Pueblo dwellings. These dwellings were created nearly a thousand years ago by the Indigenous people. The first dwelling we saw was the Wukoki dwelling. I hiked a short distance to it and got this shot. It's pretty amazing to be standing upon a place where a number of families made their living and thrived here with nothing of any kind of technology that we use today. Interestingly, when the people left here, the history doesn't tell where they went or what happened to them. Locally, one of the theories are that the Hopi tribes are descended from them.
