Tuzigoot

IMG_2222

Tuzigoot (which means crooked water) is what is left of a Sinagua village.  It is located in Clarkdale, Arizona and was built between 1125 and 1400.  Originally it was two stories tall with at least 77 ground floor rooms.IMG_2226

There were few exterior doors because the inhabitants used ladders and entered through opening in the roof.  We had just learned all about the Sinagua at Montezuma Castle so this was a perfect next stop.IMG_2200

There was a wonderful museum showing artifacts collected at the site.  Marcus and Caroline completed the Junior Ranger Program and learned about excavating artifacts. IMG_2206

We took the Pueblo Trail and explored.  Tuzigoot was one of the largest pueblos in the Verde Valley.  People who lived here had neighbors.  There are three other pueblos close to Tuzigoot.IMG_2230This pueblo was built over time and added on to as needed.  Marcus and Cali practiced grinding corn.  While we visited the Sedona area we stayed at the Verde Valley Thousand Trails.  The day before we were ready to move on Marc discovered a hole in one of the tires of the truck.  He got up the next morning and found a tire shop where he could get it repaired so we were ready to get back on the road.
