Phase two of your tour shifts you into Pink Jeep Tours’ Ancient Ruin Tour where there’s plenty of time to marvel at the ruins at Honanki Heritage Site. Here’s a fun fact: Honanki means “bear house” in the Hopi language. This 700-year-old cliff dwelling is managed by the U.S. Forest Service under the Red Rock Pass Program. You’ll find over 2,000 examples of rock art on the cliff walls, from pictographs to petroglyphs. Did you find the fire marks? A large fire burned down the rooms at the east end of the site. Later, these rooms were rebuilt by the same stones that burned. The Honanki Heritage Site offers numerous photo opportunities for the camera lover, but please do not touch this historical landmark.

Patty was kind and outgoing and obviously knew the area very well. She was great with my 12 year old daughter, yet also clicked with the other group of adult women on our tour. There were plenty of photo opportunities and she offered to take pictures for each group. Overall, it was a great way to see things that we never would have on our own.

It was awesome and more than I expected. Patti Lamb's driving was excellent. The terrain was rugged and we enjoyed the hairy ride. We were thrilled with the ride. Patti's knowledge of the plants, animals, the ruins and the area in general were great. Patti gave me her hand when I needed a little assistance.
