On our way to Page, Arizona, we saw unusual rock outcropping, we stopped at the Burger King in Kayenta, they had an exhibit about the World War II Navajo Code Talkers. Navajo did not talk in code, but their native language, which so confused and frustrated the Japanese since they could not break the "Code". The exhibit is very extensive and has a wonderful Navajo Turquoise bracelet with a Purple Heart Medal inlayed in the center. We then stopped at the Navajo National Monument. It preserves three of the most intact cliff dwellings of the ancestral puebloan people (Hisatsinom). The Navajo people who live here today call these ancient ones Anasazi. The monument is high on the Shonto plateau, overlooking the Tsegi Canyon system in the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona.
