But that content has to be crafted, and that requires an investment. Every day of the year National Parks Traveler brings you content to inform and educate, content that we're determined to make available for all so as to increase advocacy, stewardship, and support for the parks. That's why we ask for your support.

A Walk Through Walnut Canyon National Monument

Just 10 minutes east of Flagstaff, Arizona, on a densely forested plateau, the serpentine chasms of Walnut Canyon long ago gave refuge to hundreds of Native Americans. Occupied from approximately 1100 to 1250 CE, the Sinagua people were experts in growing crops and living in an arid environment. While this national monument might simply be a quick stop for travelers heading to Petrified Forest National Park or Grand Canyon National Park, it deserves a visit unencumbered by a tight timeframe.
