Piercing the Sky Photograph by Adriel Heisey
Jagged as a shark's tooth, Agathla Peak looms over the landscape near Kayenta in the Navajo Nation, Arizona. In Navajo the peak's name means "a lot of wool," says Martin Begaye, program manager for the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department. "There used to be some sheep camps around there, and the people would do their shearing in that area," he says. "There was a lot of wool flying around from the wind."
