Rose Marie Williams (at right) visits with her aunt, Tsosie Hyden, in Pasture Canyon, an oasis-like wash several miles outside of Tuba City, where year-round springs flow from caves. Access is difficult, but Rose Marie and others are testing crops here, eager to take advantage of the fertile soil and natural irrigation.
