Inspirational Arizona - Montezuma Castle

Continuing my inspirational Arizona reverse chronological order.  :-)


My last day in Arizona was jam-packed with fun! I left Sedona in the AM and stopped at Montezuma castle and Jerome (another blog post) on my way to the Phoenix airport.

Montezuma Castle is one of the first four sites to be declared National Monuments by Theodore Roosevelt. It is a prehistoric cliff dwelling built by the Sinagua Indians who occupied it for more than 300 years.



This was further down from the castle and is the ruins of another dwelling.


There's a short scenic trail that loops out around the park. This sign was a reminder that nature abounds! Rattlesnakes are common in this area.

After leaving Montezuma Castle, I headed toward Jerome, a must-do for any art-loving person.



  1. This is awesome to see in person, I highly recommend it!

  2. That looks so amazing Cyndi! I hope I can visit it someday for myself. Thanks for sharing!
