Equipment:  Canon D30.  ISO 100, f 9.5, shutter speed 1/20 second.  Taken 6 P.M. February 2, 2002.

Digital manipulation:  slight color adjustment.

Notes: Beautiful rock formations and a favorite site for John Ford/John Wayne movies. There are places to stay in Kayenta or at Goulding's.  Since this is all Navajo (Diné) land, you will need to hire a guide to visit most sites.  Guides are available through the Visitors’ Center.  The window may also have other names so check out the postcards to either identify a name or to show to the guide.  At any rate, the window is located a couple of miles in back of Goulding’s and requires a relatively easy drive across loose sand and a short walk to the site.
