If you are a rock climber or a budding archeologist, then you can get your own fix at the Palatki Heritage Site. This rock formation and archeological site can be found in the Coconino National Forest in Sedona, Arizona.

Ruins believed to belong to the Sinagua, a prehistoric American tribe related to another early Native American tribe, the Hopi Indian Tribe. Palatki means ?red house? in the Hopi language and best describes the iconic red rock cliffs. The ruins of the dwellings believed to be created from 1100 to 1400 can be found along these red cliffs. Pictographs and petroglyphs can also be found on the rocky walls. These belong to a more archaic culture that lived 5,000 to 6,000 years ago.

Aside from archeological attractions, the site is also a favorite among campers and rock climbers. Many people visit the site every year to engage in these outdoor adventures.
