The Canyon Echo is from a place diverse in cultures and landscapes. Perhaps we are Diné, Anglo, or Ute. Whoever we are, we are here together. Where we live, water comes as sudden news to desert mesas and winds its way through arroyos and canyons, the neural network that informs and nourishes this country and its inhabitants. Canyon Echo listens to what reverberates through these canyons on the middle and lower stretches of the San Juan River, hoping to echo with clarity for those who call desert and river home.
