Coal Mine Canyon
(Honoojí - Sawtoothed or Jagged)


The Navajo name, Honoo Jí, refers to the saw-toothed or jagged erosion occurring at the high parts of Coal Mine Canyon. Its deep varied colors cuts into the Mesa Verde and Mancos shales with scenic value similar to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. The canyon heads abruptly in Coal Mine Mesa, 17 miles southeast of Tuba City and runs north 15 miles to join Blue Canyon.

The fine variegated colored sands and shales are greatly favored by Navajo medicine men for sand painted pictures. There is an abundance of fossil shells to be found along the rim of the canyon.
