Navajo National Monument
Hiking to Betatakin Ruins in Navajo National Monument is one of the best ways to explore a well preserved ruin while enjoying the beautiful red rock landscape of northern Arizona. It is situated in a shady alcove, which has helped to protect and preserve this dwelling. Rumors of it being haunted kept bandits and thieves away as well. A Navajo Ranger will guide your hike to the ruins, and answer all your questions about them. Take this hike in the spring to catch blooming claret cup cactus.
