During our trip to the Grand Canyon on our “Fabric of America” tour, we were able to spend some time checking out the Little Colorado River Gorge in the Navajo Nation, which lies just southeast of the aforementioned massive tourist destination.

We didn’t actually know we were going there, but we ended up driving through during our return to Flagstaff from the Grand Canyon.

Stopping along the way, we met some very nice people who sold us some very nice handicrafts for our family. They were also happy to spend some time telling us about life in the Navajo Nation and the sights of the surrounding area.

Pictures abound, naturally. We loved that we could walk right up to the edge of the gorge, and especially dug the murals painted on buildings and billboards in the area.

As this is the first of our “In Pictures” series, I’ll save the commentary and let your imagination run wild via this handful of photos. Enjoy!
