We wanted to visit a place called Walnut Canyon, so we finished our coffee, drove through Oak Creek Canyon and Flagstaff and at last found Walnut Canyon National Monument. This canyon was occupied in the 1100’s by the same tribes that we have found across the many planes of Arizona. This group has been dubbed with the title “The People Without Water”. There were as many as 300 homes (cliff dwellings) dug into this canyon. Far below there was a river that would flow for a short while each year and then just disappear. They were found to be farmers, or as some would put it, “seed planters”, and they would find a small or somewhat larger spot on the side of this canyon and plant their seeds. We walked down just under 300 steps to get to a land bridge that would take us to “The Island”. This island, being elongated, allowed us a chance in walking the perimeter, to visit some of the “homes”, easily see across to the canyon walls, and as we got lower, study the dry river bottom.
