Experience A Legacy!
Wupatki! Here in one of the warmest driest places on the Colorado Plateau, with little obvious food or water, people lived and others visited from far and wide. Trade items from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico have been discovered here. Eventually the builders of Wupatki and nearby pueblos moved on, but on trails, and through items left behind, you can let their stories touch you!
Did You Know?
Arizona has more fairy shrimp than any other state except California. Three species of fairy shrimp, a single tadpole shrimp species, and a single clam shrimp species are found in the ephemeral pools and prehistoric impoundments at Wupatki National Monument.
