Navajo Country

Mountains are sacred all over the world, but for the Navajo they're not just sacred, they form a kind of spiritual boundary around their culture. As long as the Dinetah stay within the four sacred mountains, everything will be alright.

That's a drastic over-simplification, but hey...I'm no expert on Navajo religion. But I do have Google Earth, so I mapped them out. Two of them happen to be in Colorado, Blanca Peak and Mount Hesperus.
