When leaving my home in the high desert, a 40 minute drive to this location, Wupatki National Monument, I had second thoughts about making the trip. The sky was cast over, the sun behind the clouds. Yet 30 minutes later when I dropped in elevation to 5000 ft before i reached my destination, the clouds started to brake up and an hour later the sky put on a sunset show that I never would have expected. Shows again, you never know if you are getting the photo or not. Wupatki was a thriving community 800 years ago, built in what is now northern Arizona.
