Navajo Mountain

Navajo Mountain

The first view of Navajo Mountain as we come up over a rise is breathtaking. The photos don’t do it justice. The mountain is over ten thousand feet high and looks black in the distance. We are at 6000 feet and the mountain takes me completely by surprise. One of the inner sacred mountains, it stands as a sentinel over this part of the Rez.
