spent the afternoon with my mom, my brother and his girlfriend
after late brunch at the ranch house grill, made a visit to the pueblo grande museum, hiking the little trail
the other day my mom mentioned that she would like to go up hayden butte, so we hit that too
we then inflicted "straight outta compton" on my mom :pk: :pk: :pk:
fun day with family :)

My fiancee had to visit a government office in downtown Phoenix so we made a day of it. First stop on our tour of the city's finer points, Pueblo Grande Museum. Since Phoenix wouldn't exist without the Hohokam and their canals this seemed as good a spot as any for an introduction to the Valley of the Sun.

Charger55's triplog reminded me I've been wanting to return here for a long time, so I went.

First time visit. There's a map in the museum that shows the location of all the Hohokam villages in the greater Phoenix area. There must've been hundreds. It had me wondering if any others are still standing.

AAS Meeting at Pueblo Grande

Went to the Phoenix Chapter of the Arizona Archeological Society (see => http://www.azarchsoc.org/ ) monthly meeting to hear Dr. Keith Kintigh (see => http://shesc.asu.edu/kintigh ) speak on the Zuni Lands in the wake of the Chacoan Collapse. Dr. Kintigh gave a fascinating talk about the existence of dozens of Chacoan "outliers" that post-date the 850-1150 Chacoan Period. This seems like perfect symmetry to our summer solstice visit (see => http://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=11574 ) to Chaco Canyon and multiple outliers...

Kin Hocho'i, Kin Cheops, Ojo Bonito, H-Spear Site, Hinkson Site, Los Gigantes, Heshotatuthla, Howiku => here's enough "clues" to merit a future trip to Zuni Lands!

Also found it interesting that Dr. Kintigh has also had a research focus on Perry Mesa (see => http://www.azpbs.org/video/vidlink.php?vidId=793 ). This is another area of personal exploration...

With Fabian. I've always been curious about this archeological site in the middle of Phoenix. Some interesting displays in the museum, particularly some of the more recent finds due to light rail construction. I found the quantity of wildflowers an unexpected treat. And if you want a spot to watch the "big birds" taking off, the platform mound may be the best spot in town...

PS. Couldn't beat the admission price today - free admission every Sunday...

Adult supervision for the Native Cultures Club field trip to the Heard Museum, with stops at Deer Valley, Pueblo Grande, and (most important) the mall!
