Walnut Canyon National Monument
A few miles East of Flagstaff, Arizona you can visit another national monument featuring more of the ancient native cliff dwellings that are so common among the Southwest. An easy descent down steps leads you to a 1 mile loop trail around the cliff dwellings with great views of the surrounding canyon. Another 1 mile walk take you out to a few viewpoints which offer another perspective on the monument. This was an easy experience that is worth the day trip if you are spending some time in Flagstaff.
