Welcome to Window Rock
The tribal capital of Window Rock sits at the intersection of Hwys 264 and 12, near the New Mexico border. The namesake rock is a nearly circular arch high up on a red sandstone cliff in the northern part of town; at its base is the Navajo Veterans Memorial Park. Also worth a quick peek is the nearby Navajo Nation Council Chamber (open 8am to noon and 1pm to 5pm Monday to Friday), beautifully festooned in murals, where tribal delegates hold legislative sessions. With the interesting Navajo Nation Museum also found here, the capital is definitely worth a stop if you're in the area, particularly during the Navajo Nation Fair.
