Today we continued to cruise west toward Williams. East of Flagstaff we stopped at the Walnut Canyon National Monument which has some outstanding cliff dwellings from the Sinagua people who lived in this area from 1125 to 1250. The trail to the dwellings is only 0.9 miles but is fairly challenging as it descends to the canyon floor and backup up. Continuing on west we stopped at the old site of the Twin Arrows Trading Post with its iconic red arrows. We ended the day in Williams AZ which is the last town bypassed by the interstate in 1984.
