Not much traveling going on lately, but a little over a year ago, we went to the Albuquerque balloon festival and used that trip for a few days of wandering in northwestern New Mexico and eastern Arizona. We tracked down sites from the Tony Hillerman map of the area and stumbled across this park in Window Rock, Arizona, honoring the code talkers of World War II. The sign above gives a thumbnail history of the first code talkers who happened to be Navajo. Other tribes also contributed to this effort. I’ll admit to being choked up at the courage and cleverness of these men. Window Rock, Arizona, while small, is well worth the trip both for the history and for the scenery.
