Fabulous! And great exercise!! A giant step back in Native American time. A self guided tour that spurs your imagination. The Park staff were ready to provide great answers.

The attraction itself took just under an hour. We drove a little up the road and then took a three hour hike, but that was at no charge and not at the monument site.
