Whenever we have a chance to enter the Grand Canyon from the east via Highway 64 we always stop by the Native American trading area located at the Little Colorado River Gorge. This year was no exception, and we stopped there early in the morning of June 23rd, 2005, after spending the night in Kayenta, AZ.
There is always a wide variety of hand-made goods ranging from jewelry to pottery, and changing slightly from year to year. In addition, the traders are located near a canyon so dramatic that it likely would be nationally famous if it weren’t located within an hour of the Grand Canyon.
I uploaded a number of pictures of the Little Colorado River Gorge to Flickr; a small sampling is shown below.
