This is an area on tribal land. In the parking area there are several sales booths set up. Walk a 1/2 mile or so over very rough ground to see a different perspective of this area. Interesting to see the Canyon narrow.

I'd check it out even AFTER seeing the Grand Canyon. It's impressive, and some angles are pretty breath-taking. The jewelry stands are a nice bonus.
