Now, hundreds of years after it was built, the Casa Grande (big house) Ruins look lonely and isolated on a vast tract of desert. But in the 1300's this structure was the centerpiece of a thriving community of thousands of Hohokum Indians who maintained an extensive system of irrigation canals and had a thriving abundance of crops. Interior photos provide a hint of what the structure looked like.

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
