S is for Shiprock

Any fan of the wonderful Tony Hillerman novels has read about Shiprock, the majestic rock formation that stands out in northwestern New Mexico near the Four Corners of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. It is a holy place for the Navajo, who don't want people to get too close to it. Listen closely to the wind, and perhaps you will hear the spirits of Tony Hillerman and his detectives Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn wandering across the desert landscape.

Sure is beautiful.

I don't know the book, but I hope that beautiful rock gets the reverence it deserves. I can imagine the wind sighing ...
Thank you Bob.
