Thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing this info. I didn't know these were sacred peaks of the Navajo, although I've summitted two of them.

Sacred Mountains

I've worked on the Navajo Reservation for 13 years. I've climbed Hesperus and can see it from my house. I've just always wandered about the designation as North with Blanca being designated East. I didn't pull out a map and check, but Hesperus is not much more North of Blanca (if at all).

Re: Sacred Mountains

I wouldn't mind to come give Humphrey's a go in winter. If ever in my neck of the woods (Cortez, CO) and want to climb give me a yell.

Many Thanks

As someone who devoured the Tony Hillerman Navajo mysteries, I really appreciate this list. They are referred to often in the books.

Blood and Thunder

... by author Hampton Sides also mentions these peaks quite a bit. The book is a history of the Navajo and their dealings with Kit Carson, Stephen Watts Kearny, and others during the mid-19th century. Great book, and this a great idea for a page. Thanks.
