Devil's Bridge and Boynton Canyon

Boynton Canyon

These are some amazing pics we took of Kachina Woman at sunset. We loved it so much we've been there several times. Please enjoy our pics and the story of Kachina woman. 

Kachina woman towers above Boynton Canyon, Land of the Seven Main Canyons. She is a vortex, but also a beacon for humankind.
Several thousand years ago, all 2-leggeds lived on the surface of Earth, like we do today. We lived in unity, peace and understanding for several thousand years. Walking every pathway of Mother Earth. Great Mystery (aka God) created us in his image and also gave us free will, egos and a growing, expanding, questioning mind. Over time, as our minds expanded with knowledge, our egos and desire to control expanded as well. We began controlling and manipulating other 2-leggeds. We created big wars to prove our superiority over other tribes. Eventually, we killed each other, except for a handful of 2-leggeds who sought shelter during those times.
Great Mystery was severely disappointed. He moved us from the surface of Earth & its rich abundance, down to Middle Earth (like the hobbits!). And he gave us a Guardian - Kachina Woman. In Hopi legend, Kachina was like the Virgin Mary, Hera from Greek Mythology, and Lakshmi from Eastern Indian folklore. Kachina was our divine protector, moderator and overseer. She ruled over us in Middle Earth with a kind, gentle hand, but also reported back to Great Mystery often, as he re-built the Earth we almost destroyed.

Several hundred years went by. We behaved ourselves. Kachina went to Great Mystery, told him how well we got along and asked if we could return to the new abundance of Earth's surface he created. He agreed. Under two conditions: (1) That Kachina Woman continue looking after us, looking over us. (2) And should we start destroying each other again, Kachina Woman would crumble or fall - as a signal to all 2-leggeds that Great Mystery was unhappy again and we'd be forced to straighten up without the guidance or help of Kachina - or else he'd move us all to some undisclosed, dark world, never to return to Earth's beautiful, abundant surface ever ever again.
So, if ever Kachina crumbles or falls, Hopis believe humanity is lost and will soon move to a dark, unknown place worse than Middle Earth. --Robin Kelley

One time we went we climbed up and behind Kachina Woman to the ceromonial cave. Shockingly and amazingly enough there was a concert cello player.....don't ask why because we don't know. Dad got this video

As if that wasn't crazy and lucky enough. The next time we went back on the male energy side across the vista about 50 yards away there was a man playing the Indian flute. Dad got a video although he was out of breath beacause we just climbed the mountain as you'll here. I was fine and would have taken the video but lack of opposable thumbs restricts my camera duties.

Devil's Bridge

We had to climb way up high to get to this natural sandstone arch. No words can tell the story so take a look at these pics. 


This tired doggy is going to get some rest for our next adventure
