Tuzigoot, the remains of an ancient pueblo or village built by a peoples known as the Sinagua around 1000 A.D., is located on a hill top just outside of Clarkdale, AZ.

In order to escape the heat building in the house, we decided to take a family outting to Tuzigoot. Rather than take the more direct route — I-17 North, then SR-260 West to Cottonwood, then SR-89A West toward Clarkdale — I inadvertantly exited I-17 at SR-69, driving through Prescott, through the mountains to Jerome, and then on to Clarkdale. Although this was a MUCH longer route, the scenery more than made up for it.
