POTD: Canyon del Muerto #1

FJ3617Canyon del Muerto #1
Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona
2015

We’re spending a couple of days on the Navajo Reservation on our way to Tucson. Yesterday we took a jeep tour up Canyon Del Muerto, a canyon adjoining Canyon de Chelly. We saw lots of petroglyps, pictographs and ruins as well as the usual canyon country geological and vegetative features. I’ve spent a lot of time in this part of the southwest over the years, including my two week stint in 2013 at the Hubbel Trading Post just south of here. but this short half-day trip was still quite unique. So I thought I’d start at least a short series of images from the trip, starting with these fine pictograph examples.
