Ruins in Loy Canyon is one of the best I’ve seen in Sedona area. Gary, my friend, took me there once. I was happy to go with him and his friend, Rik, again. No wonder ancient people chose this location—the view is spectacular. Okay, that is my emotions talking. 🙂 Logically I doubt that was the reason they chose to live so high up the cliff. It must be for defense purposes. Nevertheless, the sight is perfect for a “home with a view”, if you don’t mind climbing.
PS. It is off trail, require some scrambling to reach it.
