Horses in the Canyon

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Canyon de Chelly is a favorite spot of mine. Home of the ancient Anasazi and Navajo, this spectacular location is an artist's delight. Everywhere you turn there's a painting. Now part of the National Park System, Canyon de Chelly is co-managed with the U.S. Park Service and the Navajo Nation. I've taken artists into the canyon for week long painting trips and each time I go I am awed by it's beauty. We pack in on horseback and on our ride out came upon this group of wild horses.
