Agathla Peak or Agathlan (Navajo: Aghaałą́, Spanish: El Capitan) is a peak south of Monument Valley, Arizona, which rises over 1,500 feet (460 meters) above the surrounding terrain. It is 7 miles (11 km) north of Kayenta and is visible from U.S. Route 163. The English designation Agathla is derived from the Navajo name aghaałą́ meaning 'much wool', apparently for the fur of antelope and deer accumulating on the rock.[3] The mountain is considered sacred by the Navajo.


Agathla Peak is an eroded volcanic plug consisting of volcanic breccia cut by dikes of an unusual igneous rock called minette. It is one of many such volcanic diatremes that are found in Navajo country of northeast Arizona and northwest New Mexico. Agathla Peak and Shiprock in New Mexico are the most prominent. These rocks are part of the Navajo Volcanic Field, in the southern Colorado Plateau. Ages of these minettes and associated more unusual igneous rocks cluster near 25 million years.

About the Milky Way

Milky Way has a relatively low surface brightness. Its visibility can be greatly reduced by background light, such as light pollution or moonlight. The sky needs to be darker than about 20.2 magnitude per square arcsecond in order for the Milky Way to be visible.[41] It should be visible if the limiting magnitude is approximately +5.1 or better and shows a great deal of detail at +6.1.[42] This makes the Milky Way difficult to see from brightly lit urban or suburban areas, but very prominent when viewed from rural areas when the Moon is below the horizon.[b] Maps of artificial night sky brightness show that more than one-third of Earth's population cannot see the Milky Way from their homes due to light pollution.[43].

Ready to Hang Metal Prints

These ready-to-hang metal prints represent an art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Metal prints have more detail and richer colors than canvas. Metal-finished images will take on a good luminescence but not to the level of acrylic products. The colors are vibrant, and the luminescence is excellent. They are available in sizes up to 48” x 96”.

Paper - Museum Quality Fine Art Rag Paper Print

Navajo Sky print

Classic Fine Art Museum Quality Paper preferred for Color or Black and White Prints

I prefer this paper for the best classic fine art display medium for Color and Black and White. My work has been printed on this paper thousands of times and displayed in collections worldwide. Its surface is smooth with a subtle texture and a slightly warm base that produces very pleasing B&W and Color prints reminiscent of platinum prints. Fine Art Rag paper meets the highest industry standards regarding density, color gamut, color graduation, and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.

Most paper prints are available larger than the listed size, mounted on archival styrene, or framed on a custom basis. Please contact us for options.
