Tuzigoot National Monument is a lovely, quick drive from Sedona, Arizona. I spent the afternoon exploring the ruins, before a bit of rain and snow fell across the area. In addition to the ruins, the surrounding landscapes and mountain views are absolutely stunning. Definitely save extra time for exploring in your hiking shoes.
