It is particularly known for it's internationally famous "Two Grey Hills" Navajo rugs, which are considered the finest weaving on the Navajo Nation, often selling for between thousands to tens of thousands of dollars! The trading post is managed by Mr. Les Wilson, and boasts a herd of Churro sheep, whose different colors of wool allow natural wool for traditional Two Grey Hills rug colors, with no dyes needed.
