Tonto National Monument
A beautiful day for a hike. And it was quite a hike! You can see where we started out in the first picture, and our destination--the ruins high up in the hills. It was quite a feat for five little kids and three moms carrying babies (and yes, mine is still in my belly, but that doesn't mean he counts any less). Everyone we passed had an amused look and a thoroughly witty comment for us. The cliff dwellings were very cool, and though not on as grand a scale as Mesa Verde, we got to walk into all the rooms, which was neat. And the views of Roosevelt Lake were beautiful, reminding us just how high we had come...quite an accomplishment.
