What should be on your Arizona bucket list in 2018? Why not try the road less traveled? Over the next week or so, we’ll share seven hidden gems from all around the state.
First up: The Navajo National Monument, where Betatakin and two other ancient cliff dwellings still remain.
More than 100 miles northeast of Flagstaff, it’s easy to miss this spot, unless you are heading to Monument Valley.
Why is it worth visiting? The stunning landscape, for one. Steep sandstone walls change color depending on the light, providing mesmerizing views. And then, when you spot the villages nestled within, it's almost other worldly.
You understand why Indiana Jones travels to the ends of the Earth for views like this, and you only had to travel deep into Arizona.
