It's a remarkable experience to stand next to a ruin and see the centuries-old mud mortar crumbled and falling apart under Time's irresistible influence. Visiting Wupatki, I felt physically connected to the past, and, while staring at the past and the walls crumbling into dust, I was reminded of my future. We must make the best of the time we are given.
