  • I've been seeing this place in history books and encyclopedias since I was a child. I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Once you visit this place you kind of get a better understanding of why the natives may have chosen this spot. Above the canyon there's literally nothing but desert. The canyon floor offered water and protection. I'm really glad I got to mark this off my bucket list.
  • This museum was awesome. And wow a blast from the past both literally and pun intended. It seems as if nothing has been updated in there since the 70s. The fonts, imagery, etc. It was exactly how you picture National Park brand from back in the day. The amount of content they had was awesome and it explained all of the sites you get to witness so well. I liked this museum as much as I liked exploring the actual park.
