Navaho dawn

Yellow boy creeping in on blue boy. Dawn in Monument Valley. We retold the Navaho tale of sunrise that Sydney and Jasper's grandfather Alexander Eliot learned from the Navaho when he lived with them in the late 1930's.

Jasper researching his Shelter Project, a Navaho hogan. In third grade he builds a model of a traditional home of his choosing.

On the road to Zion National Park

More tales of the sun and moon on the road to dreamland.

This looks incredible. These stories and experiences will stay with them always, how wonderful to be there and experience it all in person.
