"Respect the Land and the People" Hovenweep National Monument Favorite Tip by KiKitC

  Trail back to the Visitors Center

Favorite thing: I couldn't say this any better than it is said in all the brochures distributed at these sites...

"The name Anasazi has long been used for the prehistoric farmers of the Four Corners. The term now favored is ancestral Puebloan, indicating they were the ancestors of modern-day Puebloans. Many Pueblo people maintain physical and spiritual connections to these places. Please appreciate and respect them."

You know, it really was sad to see graffetti etched into the rocks of these ancient homes by ignorant tourists. Really, how would you feel if you invited somebody into your home and they carved their name into your kitchen table???
