General View of the Citadel Ruin
Wupatki National Monument, Arizona

This pueblo ruin stands guard like a fortress atop a small hill of volcanic rock.  It once included fifty or so rooms on multiple levels.  A single passage on the south side was the only entrance into the complex, suggesting a concern with security.  Kayenta Anasazi influenced Sinagua Indians constructed the pueblo sometime during the 12th century.  Photograph taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
