Today we packed our bags and left our Worldmark condo in Santa Fe. Six hours later we were at Walnut Canyon National Monument just outside of Flagstaff. Although we have visited before, this unique cliff dwelling location always has something to offer.
This afternoon we discovered that the main trail down into the canyon was closed for repairs. They were hurrying to complete the work for the busy Memorial Day weekend. Therefore, we had to content ourselves with a cliff top walk and long distance views of the ruins. I made myself busy taking photos of the many flowers blooming.
I also found a couple of other interesting plants. Here is an extreme closeup of a yucca.
And here is an extreme closeup of the native grass that loops as the end dries.
We are now settled in our motel room (no timeshare for us in Flagstaff). Tomorrow more adventures await. Now it’s time for ukulele practice.
