Castle by the Creekside
Greetings again, dear readers! Today, to begin ushering in summer (and the end of finals), I’ve got a smallish gallery from a recent stop at Montezuma’s Castle. The castle is really a pueblo built by the Sinagua, wonderfully preserved after its abandonment in the 1400s. It sits perched in a cavity in a limestone cliff-face overlooking Beaver Creek right before it joins with the Verde River in the town of Camp Verde. You may notice this gallery is one day short of a full year since my last visit, so the vegetation was much the same and the creek was flowing nicely. Unfortunately I was only able to spend about 30 minutes there, as the monument was closing and people have accidentally been locked in before. In the absence of a thoroughly observational walk around the base of the castle, I’ll just post a couple of favorite photos for your unhindered viewing enjoyment.
Be sure to check out the full gallery, linked to each of these photos, as there are a few nice vertical shots which don’t format quite right when attached to a post. And of course, if you see a photo which would fill that empty spot on your wall perfectly, all of these are available to be printed, just check the Store section for more details.
Thanks for looking, and stay tuned for more in coming days!
