One of the most well-preserved ancient ruins in Arizona, Tuzigoot National Monument preserves a prehistoric, 110-room pueblo built by the Sinagua people a millennium ago. Unfortunately, the monument suffered a fire earlier this month – but worry not! Although the grounds did sustain some damage, the pueblo itself is just fine – and the park reopened to the public on April 9. Some areas, however, remain closed. Here is everything you need to know.
