This was home

The rock walls of 800-year-old pueblos dot a desert landscape once home to thousands of people. This photo was taken in Wupatki National Monument northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona as the sun was setting.

Wupatki is adjacent to Sunset Crater National Monument and sits on a plain some 1500 feet below the volcanic domes. In the fading light, I wandered among the remains of the pueblos, absolutely alone in the Arizona high desert.

And I felt that this could be home.
