The 43rd Ninth Grade Trip, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist churches and fellowships of Cheyenne, Ft. Collins, Greeley, Boulder, Denver, Golden, Littleton, Parker, and Colorado Springs is an educational trip to the Hopi and Navajo reservations. The trip happens around the middle of April each year and lasts for ten days. The first and last days are spent traveling to get from Denver to Farmington and then back again. The remaining days are spent as follows:

Hopi Mesas - We will spend two days on the three mesas of the Hopi people. During our time there we will visit Hopi villages and possibly see the Kachinas dance. Watching a Kachina dance is one way for us to observe and respect an important element of the Hopi religion.

Flagstaff - Visits to the Museum of Northern Arizona, Wupatki Ruins and the Walnut Canyon Ruins provide further insight into pre-historic cultures of the area.

Ganado/Hubbell's Trading Post – Part of a day will be spent touring the oldest still operating trading post and Hubbell's home. In addition, demonstrations in Navajo weaving and a talk on Navajo rugs are included in this stop.

Canyon de Chelly/Chinle - One day is spent at Canyon de Chelly visiting various sites including White House ruins and Spider Woman Rock. One night is spent at Chinle Elementary School.

Navajoland - Two days are spent at the Tohaali Navajo School, experiencing the life of a Navajo student. Ninth grade trippers attend school with Navajo students.
