Approximately FOUR hours in length. Ability level MODERATE – MODERATE +. This is the most strenuous of our tours and participating involves some off-trail walking and climbing rock inclines on foot. Fair or better physical condition is REQUIRED. If you feel you have what it takes, come wander off the beaten path with us into a realm of ancient Hopi ceremonies. Let Windows of the West guide you to a unique collection of 2000 year old petroglyphs secreted away in red rock cliffs covered in dark desert varnish, the true mark of time.
This ancient ceremonial site is reached by paved road driving followed by a short off-road jaunt through sage brush and desert foliage. From there the journey resumes on foot, and one can almost hear the ancients beckoning as we climb and work our way over the red sandstone. Once in the canyon, you may linger among the petroglyphs and question your knowledgeable local guide. Photographs are encouraged, so make sure to bring your gear, or a simple cell phone will suffice. Be sure to pause and listen to the stillness that now permeates a place imprinted with the sounds of ancient singing and dancing. Listen with ALL your senses… Can you hear them? We feel you sure you will…
FUN FACT: This site is still in use today by modern Paiute medicine men!
