***For the Health and Well being of everyone, the Hogan will not be available due to the Coronavirus pandemic up till the end of April 2020***Visiting the Navajo Nation? Wake up to the sound of Mustangs and enjoy an eye-catching South-Western view in a Navajo Hogan located in the heart of Navajo country. 30 minutes north of Canyon de Chelly and 60 minutes south of Monument Valley. The one-room, Dirt floor Hogan sleeps two and has no running water.
This is an extremely rural setting where you can really get off the beaten path on the Navajo Nation. The hogan has a traditional sand/dirt floor, an east-facing door, and is extremely peaceful, private and quiet. Since I have no running water, this means there is no bathroom. There is, however, an outhouse adjacent to the hogan. There is a queensize bed for sleeping, and a twin-size air mattress for additional sleepers if you give me advance notification. Basically, you want to come equipped for car or lean-to camping, and you will be pleasantly surprised by how much more comfortable it is than camping!
The night sky is *incredible* up here on Carson Mesa, as are the sunrises and sunsets. Experiencing Canyon de Chelly National Monument--the only national park on tribal trust land where tribal members live and farm in the canyon--is a must. Attending a local rodeo, country western dance or going to the flea market (swop meet) on Fridays in Chinle also highly recommended (best place for mutton stew, green chiles, tortillas, fry bread, navajo jewelry, traditional teas and medicines, etc.)! Finally, tune in to AM radio KTNN AM 660, which is a Navajo-language , country format station, and you'll learn a lot about local events, dances, community issues and the Navajo language by listening to it. Enjoy your travels across Navajoland!
