Five  
Nin and I went to see Iron Man III for the 5th time last night up in Springdale at the faux IMAX. Yay!! It'll probably be the last time we see it in the theatre. Oh, movie, I do love you. Beforwe the movie, we had dinner at the new Zion Canyon Brew Pub. It was quite good, though, as a Twitter peep pointed out, not very 'pubby'. However, we sat by the river, it was a lovely 89ish with the sun setting and the birds singing, and the view really couldn't be beat.

A Place We Love  
So you know we went to the Grand Canyon, but one of the highlights was returning to Wupatki National Monument. What's Wupatki? It's an ancient pueblo ruin, the major one, in a park filled with many ruins of pueblos.

Wupatki is the largest pueblo in the park. A self-guided trail begins behind the visitor center.

People gathered here during the 1100s, gradually building this 100-room pueblo with a community room and ballcourt. By 1182, perhaps 85 to 100 people lived at Wupatki Pueblo, the largest building for at least fifty miles. Within a day's walk, a population of several thousand surrounded Wupatki.

Wupatki appears empty and abandoned. Though it is no longer physically occupied, Hopi believe the people who lived and died here remain as spiritual guardians. Stories of Wupatki are passed on among Hopi, Zuni, Navajo, and perhaps other tribes. Members of the Hopi Bear, Sand, Lizard, Rattlesnake, Water, Snow, and Katsina Clans return periodically to enrich their personal understanding of their clan history. Wupatki is remembered and cared for, not abandoned.


[livejournal.com profile] ninjababe and I have been here several times over the years, and this visit mimicked our first - arriving at sunset after the last ranger had gone home for the evening. If you're ever in the Flagstaff area, I highly recommend you take the time to visit this remarkable historic site.

Not a White Christmas...  
but a White Boxing Day. It snowed through the day here, though it didn't stick. Nin and I had already planned on going up to Springdale to see the Hobbit in 3D Faux IMAX, so the snow was an added bonus!

Here's the main street:

My 100 Things  
I know I'm not doing the meme, but if I was, it would include this:

tumblr_m51jdfWHil1qjlveso1_500

It's from the magazine below. )

I think the majority of the 100 things would be Hiddles related at this point. I may need an intervention [g]

I've been collecting Tom pics and am going to make the promised icon set. Just need to remember I have to make dinner tonight!

It's The Avengers!  
Well, some of them. And Nick Fury's pet dragon. Bet you didn't know he had one of those! You see, he found a path to Pern, and.... Okay, I'll stop now.



(Yes, the walls of my bedroom really are painted that dark. It's called 'thunderstorm'. Thor approves.)
