Located within the Inscription House chapter boundaries, there is a hidden gem, the Eggshell Arch.
The Eggshell Arch is particularly spectacular during the golden hour when the evening sunlight hits the bottom of the arch and reflects upward into the arch, creating the Thanksgiving arch glow. This area has been watched over by local Diné families for generations.
Book a local Diné guide to get personalized access and cultural history behind this area.
Note: Please do not attempt to hike into wilderness areas on the Navajo Nation without a permitted Diné/Navajo tour guide.
