While we enjoy wandering around the southwest, we often find ourselves with conversations about could we really live like this. Kind of silly really as the ancesteral people knew nothing of our life and it’s conveniences. For them it was about just living with water, food and shelter the only necessities.
The walk up to the ruins at Tonto National Monument is about mile, and while I had a paved trail, a water bottle, and a camera, I wondered if this same trail hauled food and water for families living here. Humbling, and then again, they may seem like the underdog, but…
I am pretty sure they must have known about the value of the real estate they were sitting on.
Be grateful….and be present in every moment.

Thanks Debbie. I look forward to Franks challenges. Thanks for stopping by.
A great post ! 🙂
It would have been a good walk to the river in the valley floor. It would have been much smaller as it looks like there is a dam on the river somewhere. I would love that view as well. Great photos and story Donna 🙂
I am going to have to put that monument on my list of places to visit. Off to the Internet to find out more details! Thanks for showing me the way.
