The Slot Canyons of the Navajo Nation

Lechee, Arizona | March 2020

Treading gently through the sand, avoiding any touch to the walls, we explored a relatively young slot canyon in the middle of the Navajo Nation. Away from the crowds and otherwise uninspired tourist lot, we were able to sink slowly into an environment that felt well outside of our world.

At one point our guide pulled to the side and let us freely explore as he played some notes through a wood flute. The sound drifted aimlessly through the narrowing corridors, smoothly, in and out of range.

Senses overwhelmed, time stopped.
