The Singing Navajo

About a month ago we visited the Grand Canyon. To make the most of our three day trip we stopped at several places on the way there and back. One side trip we simply couldn’t pass up was the iconic Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, AZ.

While adding to our copious volume of travel photos we were approached by David Daniel Toby; a Navajo man. How do I know he was Navajo? Because he told us several times, even going so far as to show us his I.D. After introducing himself he asked for money (for food, of course) and we gave our standard answer that we don’t carry cash. But the girls made him a sandwich; just in case he really was feeling a bit peckish. And in return for this small donation he offered us a song. By his definition it is comparable to “Hit the Road Jack”.
