A vista this large and magnificent could only be cut open by something equal in its extra-ordinariness. On the Navajo reservation near Kayenta, Arizona, the energy giant Peabody Coal holds huge stockpiles of coal high on top of the mountain. They use this python of a conveyor belt to transport the large amounts of coal down into the valley to be picked up by their trains. It is another unfortunate example of the complex economic web that continually affects the Navajo land and culture.
