Shiprock (Navajo: Tsé Bitʼaʼí, "rock with wings" or "winged rock"[4]) is a monadnock rising nearly 1,583 feet (482.5 m) above the high-desert plain on the Navajo Nation in San Juan County, New Mexico, USA. It has a peak elevation of 7,177 feet (2,187.5 m) above sea level. We spent several hours today driving Ron's Jeep to and exploring this magnificent rock and the surrounding area. The access is best done with a jeep or other high clearance vehicle. The pictures I posted represent several angles and views and include several views of the "Dike" formed by the volcanic activity that created the monadnock. Tomorrow we are off to Creede, Colorado.
