POTD: Many Grey Hills

Many Grey Hills
Tonalea, Arizona

There is a well-known style of Navajo rugs called two-grey hills. They originated on Navajo land in the northwest corner of New Mexico. I have no idea if there are in fact two prominent grey hills there that the rug style is named after. But quite a bit further west (still on Navajo land) there are many grey hills, some of which are shown here. (While it is true that this image has been converted to monochrome, so the hills would appear grey even if they weren’t in real life. But in this case, the grey tone of these hills matches the true color very closely.)
