"Most people know Walnut Canyon, located south and east of Flagstaff, for the small national monument that features several Sinagua cliff dwellings dating back 700 years. Actually, Walnut Canyon stretches for several miles across the Coconino Plateau, and a hike into a section upstream from the monument reveals the beauty of this small but interesting drainage without the crowds."
