Sunset Crater and Wupatki

On the way to the Grand Canyon, I stopped to visit the Sunset crater. It looks like a lunar landscape. Apparently, the site has been used for filming science fiction movies. Walking around the field of lava was surrreal. But I was in a hurry! Next stop - Wupatki - an 800 years old pueblo.
strange how these pueblos emptied out so suddenly, after having flourished in such difficult conditions.
