The Praying Man

Navajo Indian Tribal Reservation
Arizona, USA

“You’re the Praying Man!” he said.

Have you ever had your dog give you that twisted head, what the heck did you say, look to you? Well, I had just that look on my face when I replied, “What?” Again, “You’re the Praying Man!”

I’d been dropped off earlier, to explore rattlesnake canyon by the Navajo guide, I’d gotten a free invite so I took it. It was just after stepping up into the back of the guides truck, when they came back around to pick me up, that I got the question I wasn’t quite ready for. And it took me a moment to realize what the fellow was talking about. That’s when it dawned on me that he must have seen me earlier in the upper canyon.

As the shaft of light came down the thought popped into my head & it was at that moment I ran into the beam of light and knelt in prayer. “If it comes out looking anything like what I saw, it’ll be amazing!” he said.

See Ya On the Trail!
