Museum
“Walnut Canyon National Monument, only 10 miles (16km) east from Flagstaff along I-40, contains about 25 cliff-dwelling rooms constructed by the Sinagua people in the 13th century along a 1 ½ mile (2400m) loop trail. (Warning: there is a stairway of some 240 steps to get into and out of the canyon; if this is too strenuous, there is also a rim trail). ”
