Homolovi

Along the Little Colorado just NE of Winslow are.the ruins at Homolovi State Park. This is the site of an ancient Hopi village. After the obligatory stop at the visitor center to get a day.pass, I headed up to the premier dig site – where they estimate there were between 1200 – 2000 rooms.

The conservationists have left actual pottery shards out in small groupings in there area where they were dug for the visitor to view. This seemed much more impactful than viewing in a museum later.

It is a fascinating site and so very peaceful. I was able to sit on a bench by myself and just “be”. It wasn’t but a few miles from I-40 but due to rolling hills no traffic could be seen or heard!
