1. The Pygmy Conifer Forest - An Indian Store Marker
Inscription.  This trail leads through vegetation typical of the plateaus of northern Arizona. Although the trees are small, they make up a true forest – the pinyon pine-juniper forest. The stunted trees and plants here may seem an unlikely source of food, tools and clothing. But for the people of Betatakin, their Hopi Indian descendants, and the Navajo Indians, it was a natural storehouse of these things. Test your ingenuity: Could you get soap, a pair of shoes and chewing gum from this forest store?
