In and around Sedona, there are several sites bearing witness to a thousand-year old pueblo culture which settled throughout the Southwest. You may opt to take a guided tour, or you can venture out by yourself. At ruin sites like Palatki (managed by the National Forest Service) and Honanki, just a few miles down a dirt road outside of town, you can explore the adobe brick ruins of these people and marvel at extensive pictographs and petroglyphs in which they recorded their history. At Montezuma Castle or Tuzigoot (both managed by the National Park Service), both about a half-hour drive from Sedona, you can gaze upon virtual cities where these people dwelled. You will also be able to see the remainders of their orchards and fields, and possibly stumble across ancient pottery sherds – marvel at them, but please leave them where you found them.
