The Raven And The Petroglyphs

The Raven and the Petroglyphs

A raven flies past the Antelope House petroglyphs in Canyon De Chelly, Arizona.

The canyon is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in North America, mixing modern Navajo farms with Anasazi ruins. It's also one of the most peacefully desolate places I've visited, made more so by the silence of a January desert snowfall. The red walls of the canyon dropped down to the flat fields of the floor, and the frozen meanders of an icy river.
