Conference Day Trips

There are a few photos, from various day trips during the WLA conference that went a bit further afield than downtown Prescott, that I thought I would post. Most of the photos involve mountaintop or cliffside dwellings, and all involve ruins of sorts.

Montezuma Castle, built by Southern Sinagua farmers in the 1100s.

Tuzigoot, a nearby Southern Sinagua village built on the top of a ridge rather than in a cliff recess.

And we visited another mountaintop dwelling, of more recent origin, the former mining town of Jerome, which is interesting because it’s been partially preserved as ghost town, with ruined buildings left standing next to restored structures.
