  • Getting to Yucca House is really nice, however there is not much left once you arrive. Watch out for the rabbits!
  • At first glance, you see... weeds. A pile of rocks under rabbit brush. Then you notice a wall, and slowly realise that you're approaching an ancient pueblo. It's unexcavated, which means you have to concentrate and imagine the busy village that was once here. A unique and fascinating site for archaeonerds!
