Both the Hohokam and Sinagua diverted the water to irrigate their crops as well as built their homes in the area. Walk to the bottom of the well to see how their irrigation canals worked and dangle your feet in the cool water on a warm day and try to imagine how the people went about doing their daily work.

This will take you to the East entrance to the South rim of the Grand Canyon, usually less traffic than from the South entrance.
