Fajada Gap

Fajada Butte – Nageezi, New Mexico

This is the incredible view we experienced as we approached Chaco Canyon many years ago – Chaco Canyon being the common nickname for the spectacular Chaco Culture National Historical Park in northern New Mexico. The feature on the right is known as Fajada Butte, the feature on the left is known as the Chacra Mesa, and the space between them is known as the Fajada Gap. If this area were not within a federally protected park, it would be largely destroyed, as it is completely surrounded by thousands of fracking operations on all sides.
