Trails of the Colorado Plateau begin with the physical but extend into the spiritual. From the Hopi, with stories of ancient Katsina guides to Spanish conquistadors,the insights of travelers upon the Plateau are many and unique. "The Meaning of Trails" by Jim Byrkit, More than connecting places, trails tell us about trade, migrations, religion, ceremonies, territorial identities, natural catastrophes, and human relationships of many kinds. This journey through time and space traces signs of passage on the Colorado Plateau. "The Day the Katsinas Came Home" by Edwin L. Wade with Vernon Masayesva & Leigh Jenkins, Through a strange route of serendipity, 40 images of Hopi Katsinas recorded by the Spanish-American artist Jo Mora during his stay among the Hopi in 1903-1906, have now returned to northern Arizona. Leigh Jenkins and Vernon Masayesva, Hopi, discuss what the return of the Katsinas means to them. "Spanish Pathways" by Katharine Bartlett, Harold S. Colton, and Jack Holterman, Spanish presence on the Colorado Plateau began in the 16th century and followed a course that was sometimes peaceful and at other times turbulent. These writings from Museum Notes and Plateau tell the tale. "Trails Among the Aspen" by Phil C. Weigand & Celia Garcia de Weigand, Carved upon the trunks of mountain aspens are inscriptions dating back to the early 20th century that bear witness to the lives, movements, and attitudes of Hispanic shepherds. Phil & Celia Weigand have tapped this unconventional-and vanishing-historical resource. "Tracks of Time" by Ronald C. Blakey, Dinosaurs and plate tectonics. What's the connection? Blakey traces it by following a herd of dinosaurs on their journey across the uplands, lowlands, and encroaching dunes of Mesozoic Arizona. "No Turning Back" by Christa Sadler, A seasoned river runner and guide shares the story of her introduction to the Grand Canyon's River in this story of the whitewater trail.
