When visitors finally arrive at the first overlook down into Montezuma Well, they realize that it is far more than "just a hole in the ground." Our Archeolgoy Technician will discuss not just the water from Montezuma Well (and there's a lot of it - 1 million and a half gallons a day!), but Beaver Creek and the other natural resources which the Sinagua who lived here would have had in their world.
