The Navajo Reservation in Arizona is home of the most amazing stone structures I have ever seen. I was taken by my guide Logan Bigthumb to the three canyons all by myself, if you do not count the hundreds of others with us and so I could take pictures that really would not have been possible. He played the traditional Indian flute and asked the other tourists to please wait so I could shoot my photo without legs and backpacks in them! His tunes filled the canyons so beautifully I can still hear the melodies of his play. The Indians who guide you are most of them passionate photographers and know most of the hidden treasures pointing them out to you after every turn. But as you can see the magic of this place is phenomenal. Formed by the so called flash floods who can occur up to 6 miles to the south the water presses through the narrow canyon and washed out the stone, rushing to the Lake Powell in the north. You will be speechless by the beauty of its forms and colors.
A Navajo grandmother is the head of the family and gives along the tradition and the knowledge to her grandchildren. Logan's grandmother is 91 years old and still rides a horse to herd the sheep. She cooks for the family and is highly respected.
