Shiprock after a snow storm.

Shiprock represents the Navajo People. This monolith provides a seance of place and identity and is prominent in their Myth Cycle. The personality changes seasonally as well as throughout a day because the light of the Southwestern U.S. is dramatic adding to the beauty of this natural wonder.
