I rolled in to Flagstaff Tuesday afternoon.
Flagstaff is at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, so most of the day I was walking toward the Peaks.
These Peaks are sacred to the Navajo people, representing the western edge of Dinetah, the land of the Diné (Navajo). The Navajo name for the Peaks is Dook’o’oosłííd, “the summit which never melts”.
The four sacred Peaks above mark the boundaries of the traditional Navajo homeland.
It was a beautiful day
I crossed under interstate 40
Found a great horny toad
Met Paula toward the end of the day
We hiked under route 89
And finished the day by driving home.
Jumped on the scale at home and found out that I’d lost even more weight
So it’s time to take a break and rest up/eat some good food.
Off the trail for a bit of R&R,
