Deep in the heart of the desert Southwest ancient Anasazi people inhabited precarious stone dwellings high in the sandstone cliffs, and later the Navajo Indians carved a civilization in the beautiful but isolated landscape. This horseback riding tour in Arizona crosses three distinct portions of the Navajo Indian Reservation. It begins in Canyon de Chelly, whose impossibly high walls are dotted with Anasazi ruins. You then ride two days among the famed mesas, buttes and natural arches of Monument Valley before moving on to spend the final days in the rarely visited foothills of Navajo Mountain. From this camp one can see hundreds of miles across a labyrinth of sandstone canyons draining into the Colorado River. The week culminates with a boat cruise on Lake Powell, stopping enroute to see Rainbow Bridge. This is a trip for people who do not mind helping out with camp chores, and who are willing to forego creature comforts to become immersed in the unique culture and dramatic landscape of Navajoland.
