I’m trying to visit a few National Park sites I haven’t seen before on my way to Texas and one was Casa Grande Ruins National Monument...

What a great post. I love hearing about the history of other countries especially where there are ruins and such like. It is all so different to the Roman remains which we mostly find in Europe other than way back to the stone age. Very interesting. Thanks Gaelyn. Drive carefully, Diane

This is a fantastic structure. I wonder how many others melted away in the tears of time? And the people vanished into other nations..,

Gaelyn, Your post on the Great House is wonderful. I never realized the Hohokam people built such a massive astrological observatory. Thanks for the history lesson!

This is a fascinating spot! It's hard to imagine so many people living in such a small area in that place and time. It's also strange how we will travel great distances to see the sights in other parts of the world and not take the time to visit those in close proximity to us. I'm glad you are making time to do that. You make a good Jr. Ranger!

I had never heard of this park, but it looks fascinating. I love visiting old ruins and imagining what life might have been like for the people who lived there.
Great photos!
