Navajo sheep near Shiprock






















This herd of Navajo sheep was on the road from Canyon de Chelly, past Shiprock, on the way to Monument Valley. That's Shiprock from the road. We couldn't get any closer to it even with our telephoto lens. It is a magnificent volcanic shute rising from the desert floor, sacred to the Navajo. Very impressive.
