One should always be alert when something starts with a disclaimer.
Even with that thought in mind, I feel that I need to
make the reader aware that it has been 30 years
since we visited HOPI LAND and things
may have changed, but I doubt it.
|THE RESERVATION IS DEEP IN THE DESSERT|
We had worked our way across the southern USA to the Grand Canyon, where we visited for several days. My wife is about an eighth Indian, she shows it with her dark hair and high cheek bones, and was interested in visiting the reservation. We had had a lot of exchange with the Navajo, a friendly people interested in trade. They were everywhere. When I discussed visiting the Hopi with a park ranger, he did not encourage me but didn't elaborate on why I shouldn't go. Not one easily discouraged by others, I hitched up the trailer and started out on a single lane road through the dessert.
