I pay my $5 entry fee into the Tribal Park and stop the bike near the view of the Mittens.

I decide to hang out here a couple hours to watch the sunset.
I shoot a quick panorama, then go into the lodge to get some snacks.

A map of the Navajo and Hopi Lands. I thought the increase in size from the 1868 borders was interesting.

I stroll through the store looking at pricey trinkets...

I selected a cold soda and ice cream bar. There were no prices listed, so I was prepared to be robbed at the cashier.
No problem. I got in line behind 2 ladies at the cash register. The clerk was ignoring us. One of the ladies had to
repeatedly speak up before the clerk finally came over, reluctantly. She seemed rude as she took their money.
As they turned to leave I stepped forward and placed my items on the counter. The "clerk" turned her back and walked away. WTF? I left the ice cream on the counter to melt.

At least the view was priceless...
