It's been a nice fall on the rez.  NavajoYES hosted students from around the reservation at the weekend campout at the Grand Canyon Music Festival in September.  The 19th Chuska Challenge was a nice success in the Chuskas over the weekend of September 27-29.  We have done trail days in the Carrizos, enjoyed another EcoFlight experience and several adventures in the Little Colorado River region!  
Shiprock Marathon registration is now open and we're excited about the 2014 race and several new races that we have in the works!  More on these events soon.
