Photographed in the deep red hues of sunrise, the Wukoki Ruins of Wapatki National Monument were abandoned many hundreds of years ago by American Indians leaving the isolation of this high desert plain for more security in Hopi Pueblo communities. It must have been a very difficult existence, scraping a bare living from dry land subsistance farming. But what a beautiful home to leave behind. Clearly visible, an ancient desert seabed served as the sandstone floor of this dwelling.
