The Navajo Nation extends into the states of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, covering over 27,000 square miles of unparalleled beauty. The Navajo Reservation is home to more than a dozen national monuments, tribal parks and historical sites, and is peppered with a dozen lakes and ponds - Lake Powell alone has 186 miles of Navajoland shoreline.
We left Galup New Mexico and Drove all across the Navajo Nation, stopping and hiking at the Navajo National Monument. The ladscapes are breathtaking and the lands, well, empty. Suprisingly there are few towns or any shops along the way. The two lane highway is excelent and for the most part we had it to ourselves most of the time.
