Our guesthouse in Kayenta has a great view of mountains and desert. Kayenta, a planned "green" community," prides itself on low-profile homes that blend in with the landscape. From our guesthouse, we can see very few neighbors, and it's easy to gaze past them to the beautiful views. No three-story McMansions with ostentatious walled gardens and parapets here!
There's a pathway that goes from our place to our host's. It winds through a garden of native desert plants - something very appropriate for a "green" community. There's nothing like an early morning walk through it. Your only companions are the quail, chasing one another with thoughts of spring.
