Flagstaff Arizona Area National Monuments

The Flagstaff Area National Monuments - Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon National Monument and Wupatki National Monument protect more than 40,000 acres and 3,000 archeological sites in a landscape of expansive high deserts, canyons, mountains, mesas, and volcanoes. At these monuments, the earth’s geologic history lies exposed, shaped by volcanic eruptions and the slow erosion of older rock layers. Within canyon walls and in broad scenic vistas, you can witness the distant past, of ancient seas and sand dunes, and of plants and animals that have adapted to live here. Marvel at Sunset Crater’s cinder cone, down into Walnut Canyon, and out across the Wupatki grasslands to the Painted Desert. These sacred monuments reveal the stories and traditions of the Native people who lived here before us.
