... at Catalina State Park. This was the site of a Hohokam village occupied between 500-1450. What a nice hike it was! We hiked up and there were signs that explained everything.

If was nice of them to allow ...
... always wanted to visit the upper ruins. But to do that, you have to make a reservation well in advance in order to go on one of the guided tours. And the tours are only Saturday mornings and only during a portion of the year (before it gets too hot.) And only 15 people can go each week. So I've never managed to pull it off.
