Durango was established in 1881 as a frontier mining town. But many of the old-time settlers discovered they got more out of the scenery than the mines. Nestled in the Animas River Valley, in the afternoon shadows of the San Juan Mountains, people still get pretty much the same feeling. There’s something about being where picture-postcard beauty circles like an old wagon train. It tends to slow folks down a notch or two and let their best side catch up to them.
Kayenta, in northeastern Navajo County, is about 20 miles south of the Utah border on US 163. It is 148 miles north-northeast of Flagstaff and 99 miles west of Shiprock, New Mexico. Because of its remoteness, in the early days the Kayenta region was seldom visited by non-Indians. In 1874, Mormon emigrants travelled through on their way from Tuba City to Aneth. In 1910, a trading post opened at Kayenta; In 1914, the March Pass School opened; and in 1916, another trading post opened. Since that time, especially with road paving through the area, Kayenta has had considerably more traffic and has been designated a 'growth center' of the reservation. Navajos refer to Kayenta as Tohdenasshai.

Collectively called "hoodoos," these colorful and whimsical formations stand in horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters along the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in Southern Utah.
