Wupatki National Monument, Arizona – April 2022 – The Tall House

Wupatki translates to Tall House in Hopi, an appropriate name for this large Sinagua pueblo structure that had over 100 rooms.

It is constructed of Moenkopi sandstone, giving it the red color it is famous for. It dates from the 11th century.

In addition to the house there is a ballcourt and other nearby structures.
