Shiprock,( or Tsé Bitʼaʼí, "rock with wings" in Navajo) is a monadnock or inselberg — in this case a volcanic plug, standing nearly 1600 feet above the surrounding desert in San Juan County and the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. Formed about 27 million years ago, during the Oligocene epoch, Shiprock was once a vast and broad volcano, now eroded to its deepest hard parts. Its peak is 7,177 feet above sea level, and it is the preeminent landmark in northwestern New Mexico and the Four Corners area. It is also sacred in the Navajo people. Climbing, once done often, is no longer allowed. Here is another photo set of Shiprock, from an earlier flight, shot from a bit south of here, in the middle of the day.
