by mtncorg
 
 

If you are driving from the south - ie Sunset Crater and Flagstaff - just before you come to the Visitor Center next to the Wukoki Ruin, you come to a turnoff for a three mile road leading to the Wukoki Ruin. Wukoki means 'Big House' in Hopi. The ruin sits atop a huge boulder and is thought to have housed three families.

Directions: From Flagstaff, take US 89 north for 12 miles (19km), turn right at sign for Sunset Crater Volcano - Wupatki National Monuments. The Visitor Center is 21 miles (34km) from this junction.
