Just back from a visit to canyon de chelly – this part of Northern Arizona is often missed by tourists who 'do' the iconic sights of the Grand Canyon and monument valley, but they might be missing the best! This is my third visit but the first time we did the canyon floor tour- and that was as a result of seeing a fellow wordpress blogger's post. How I love the wordpress community, sharing their wonderful photography and experiences!
Sue has given us 'tradition' as this week's challenge and some of the Navajo traditions so evident on this trip seemed an obvious choice. In Navajo society ( maybe in all Native American societies, I don't know) the grandmother is the pivotal family member. Our guide, in common with many of her generation, was keen to stress this fact and by coincidence I saw an exhibition of grandmother portraits in The View at monument valley.
These are two ancient traditions but bringing it up to modern times I was fascinated by the charming old chap at monument valley who was embracing the tradition of the selfie- What do you think?
Have a great day- full of traditions 🙂
