Tsegi Canyon in the Navajo Nation

Tsegi Canyon in northeastern Arizona on the Navajo Nation reservation sits just off US Route 160. Tsegi means “in between the rocks” in Navajo and is descriptive of deep canyons with sheer walls.

The canyon walls and ground are a symphony in oranges and rusty-browns – from the oxidized iron present in the sandstone and exposed soil.
