There are so many places to enjoy a Southwest sunrise. Located within the Tonto Basin of the Upper Sonoran Desert in Arizona, Tonto National Monument protects two well-preserved prehistoric cliff dwellings and helps tell the story, not just of the Salado people, but of several American Indian tribes. Many of these tribes still feel strong spiritual ties to the cliff dwellings, deeming them to be an ancestral home. Photo by C. Sadler, National Park Service.
