Wupatki, Painted Desert, Arizona (photo)

The pueblo of Wupatki, Painted Desert, Arizona. Wupatki, means "Tall House" in Hopi, but it was built from Moenkopi sandstone by the Sinagua Anasazi people, not the Hopi. With over 100 room dwellings, and two kivas, it's the largest pre-Columbian city in the region. Down by the huge ball court, I blasted my sunhat four feet into the air at the geological blowhole. The underground caverns hosting some fantstical beast. Imagine the stories they told about that one.
