Deep in the vast Navajo Reservation in northeast Arizona, a little west of Kayenta is Tsegi Canyon; a deep slash in red sandstone that is the site of one of the best preserved ruins in the Southwest. Betatakin Ruins is thought to be the ancestral home of one of the clans of Hopi Indians, who abandoned the site 700 years ago and walked 50 miles to the Hopi Mesas where they live today. Many of the location’s names came from the ruins’ builders, and are Navajo words. Betatakin means “ledge house.” Lou DeSerio left the lookout, on the rim of the canyon, and took the trail that leads directly to the ruins. Here, you can see the immensity and the protection that the cliff offered these ancient dwellers.
