Navajo at Canyon de Chelly

By theangrymonkey
The photo was taken on a recent school trip I was leading to Arizona. The canyon in question is Canyon de Chelly, inspiration for the great Ansel Adams and a sacred Dine' (Navajo) site which is only accessed by special permission. The canyon is home to modern Dine' families as well as the ruins of ancient Pueblo dwellings. It really was quite magical, a far cry from the noise and bustle of the Grand Canyon. As I sat on an outcrop and stared into the canyon I was lucky enough to spy two Dine' horse riders making their way past the edge of the canyon wall, reminding me of the famous ES Curtis shot from inside the canyon. It was too good an opportunity to miss.
