Adventure Scrapbook – Montezuma Well
Arizona is home to one of the most well-known sites in the world, the Grand Canyon. But, it’s also home to a myriad of tiny treasures like Montezuma Well. This sinkhole in the desert contains over 15 million gallons of water and its cliffs are dotted with small ancient dwellings. For many cultures, the Well is sacred, a site to be respected. Descending toward the water’s surface along a narrow path, leaving the harsh desert behind, watching closely for hidden rattlesnake inhabitants among the lush riparian vegetation, it’s easy to believe the Well is indeed a place of power.
