My man took me to an area of Navajo Nation I hadn’t yet seen. He jokingly refers to this mountain as The Lonely Mountain. I’m sure you can guess why. While we live in Arizona, the red sandstone rocks made me feel as though I had crossed over to Utah on this trip.
Pinyon and Juniper dominate this area – another commonality with southeastern Utah.
The scenery viewed from the road alone is enough to make the trip worthwhile.
Once on Navajo Mountain, I felt right at home. Dirt roads, pinon and juniper trees, prickly pear cactus, and plenty of wildlife. It was just like being at my parent’s house in Montezuma Canyon.
In fact, the mountain actually sits just by the border of Utah, and is actually located in Utah.
Sometimes all you need is to get out, walk, breathe, and take in the scenery. A perfectly peaceful day. Thanks to my man for showing me this Beauty.
