Sitting up high

Sing your song

Make the sky.

Weaving a web

Spinning our song

Make it spread.

Canyon de Chelly (pronounced “deh Shay”) is in the heartland of the Navajo Nation in NE Arizona. It is a very worthwhile destination for its scenic beauty, but take some time to learn about the trying history of this place as well. I have very mixed feelings about Kit Carson. He was more in-tune with the native peoples than almost any white man at that time, but then he did the Army’s bidding in Canyon de Chelly and the results still echo hauntingly off the canyon’s red-brown cliffs today.

    So happy to run across this image of Spider Rock. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting and staying overnight there under a starry night. This place is truly beautiful and sacred.
