A place well worth visiting is Tuzigoot National Monument. This ancient ruin was built approximately 1000 years ago on a limestone hilltop in Arizona’s Verde Valley. The Verde River runs 120 feet below and provided year round water for the Sinagua pueblo culture. Tuzigoot has been designated an Important Bird Area.
The zinnias are in full bloom and the Two-tailed Swallowtails love them! The Two-tailed is the largest butterfly in the western part of the United States. It is also the Arizona state butterfly.
