Tusayan Ruins

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tusayan_Ruins

Quoted from wikipedia:

The Tusayan Ruins (aka Tusayan Pueblo) is an 800-year-old Pueblo Indian site located within Grand Canyon National Park,[2] and is considered by the National Park Service (NPS) to be one of the major archeological sites in Arizona.[3] The site consists of a small, u-shaped pueblo featuring a living area, storage rooms, and a kiva.[2]Tree ring studies indicate that the site was occupied for about twenty years, beginning around 1185.[2] It is found on the "Desert View Drive" portion of Arizona State Route 64, 3 miles west of the Desert View Watchtower. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]

The Tusayan Ruin and Museum is a NPS interpreted location, which includes a trail from the museum thru part of the ruin. Tours may be ranger lead or self guided.[4]

 

 

There was freezing rain the night before we left and we woke up to snow on the ground. We forgot to bring our slides in on our coaches and of course they were frozen open. Large amts of ice collected on the ourtsides of the slides. John was kind enough to clear all the slides on both coaches and we were underway around 10am heading for Las Vegas.
