I found this interesting story online about the Hopi’s first journey through the Grand Canyon. You can read it here.
Several fine artists were commissioned to paint murals inside the walls of the Tower, which is 67 feet high and 30 feet in diameter at the base. I didn't actually get to go inside that day but I found superb photos at Suprada Urval Photoblog of not only inside the Tower but also of photographs taken around the Grand Canyon. You can click on each photo to enlarge them.
One fine Hopi artist was Fred Kabotie, whose contribution was the Snake Legend. This is a story as close to the snake legend as I could find so I hope this is the right one which you can read here. It is lengthy but a good read.
My photos don't do these magnificent views justice. There will be more views in the next post.
Cedar Mountain, just outside of Grand Canyon.
