We left Tucson this morning and headed towards Phoenix, the state capitol of Arizona. On the way we decided take a side trip to Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. This was the first archeological site preserved as a reserve in 1892. The Reserve became a National monument in 1918; President Coolidge took this action along with creating a number of other monuments in the Southwest. The Monument preserves a Hohokam farming community that existed for over a thousand year. The community ended about 1450 in a mystery as did all the communities in the area at the time. After surviving Phoenix rush hour traffic we traveled north to Camp Verde and spent the night in the parking lot of the Cliff Castle Casino. We had dinner at the Casino and did not make a fortune or loss the farm.
