1st trip
I spent a night at my go-to northeastern Arizona campground at Navajo NM. It's free, and according to the ranger, has never been "full" so it's a reliable spot to show up late at night looking for a few zzz's.

It's off-season, so there are not currently any scheduled guided tours to the Betatakin ruins and the ranger who could volunteer to do it was in Phoenix for the weekend. ](*,)

So I was limited to the trails that don't require a guide as a quick morning exploration. I would have liked to see the Aspen trail in yesteryear as it continues past the current closure to the bottom of the canyon. It looked like I could get past the rockfall, but I decided not to risk the NPS violation.

The night was very cold and fires are not permitted here. But the bathroom had a heater which was nice in the morning! :)
