Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shoes

Wooly isn’t in the habit of taking photos of shoes since he isn’t much of a fashionista (just ask Raeski).  However it does occasionally happen and I found a good one for a fun topic.  The photo is taken at Canyon de Chelly overlooking Spider Rock.

There is also a Navajo legend that accompanies this photo.  Spider Woman, one of the most important deities in Navajo lore, chose to live at the top of this rock.  She had supernatural power at the time of creation.  At that time monsters roamed the land and killed the Dine (the people).  Because Spider Woman loved the people she found a way to destroy the monsters.  She also taught the Navajo the art of weaving.  Children are taught the white at the top of the rock are the bones of children who misbehaved.  Maybe we should send our politicians there and let the Spider Woman take care of them.
