This weekend I went to the Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico, the Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona, Mesa Verde National Park and Great Sands National Park in Colorado. Only a seasoned traveler would dare make such a trip. It was a lot of driving but well worth it.
I must say, Canyon de Chelly was my favorite, a stunning jewel in the vast desert. If there was any dampness or chilled bones this place took it all away. There was darkness in my soul? Where? This place is a perfect refuge for healing. I was blessed to have several conversations with some of the local Navajo artists, what a wonderful people. I’ve not felt so welcomed by strangers since my week in Bellaire Michigan.
