Wukoki Ruins

This is the Wukoki Ruin in Wupatki National Monument. Built more than 800 years ago it provided a home for 2-3 families year round. Constructed on top of a sandstone outcropping, the pueblo is up several feet above the terrain, enabling it's prehistoric inhabitants to have an unobstructed 360 degree view of the surrounding landscape.

great photos. I really like visiting your site. I do visit many photo sites now that I am a new owner of the rebel xti. It would be great if some of the sites would give there photo settings also. that would be a great learning tool for us who are new and don't have time to take classes due to older kids schedules. Have fun! Look forward to more beautiful photos!
