Montezuma's Castle

From the time Colin and I met and he found out that I grew up in Arizona, he always talked about the time he traveled to Arizona with his family when he was kid.  The thing he remembered most vividly (that is after the Donkey poop on the Grand Canyon trail memory-which by all family accounts were Colin's undoing in the holding down your food department) was Montezuma's Castle.  

It has always been a favorite spot of mine, so I looked forward to visiting it with him.  I didn't imagine that it would take some nine years and two kids later to actually make it there, but things unfold as they do and we finally got around to it.  The kid's thought it was great fun (although maybe a tad too hot for such an adventure).  Both kids wanted to know why they couldn't climb up there (sorry the site has been off limits for the better part of a half a century) and Colin couldn't get over how much smaller it seemed than he remembered -isn't that the way it goes........  Nevertheless, the trip was a lot of fun and I can't wait to play more of the tour guide role and perhaps see a few tourist sites I never got around to seeing in my 22 years in the Grand Canyon State.

To be honest, I can't remember which photos were taken by Colin and which were taken by Sophia, but here it is all the same....
