Lower Greasewood lies on the high steppe at the base of Toyei Mesa, 23 miles southwest of Ganado, Arizona. In 1972, the paved road ended at the Greasewood Chapter House and Trading Post, beyond which were the trailer-like clinic, the boarding school, and a 3-block arc of government houses where the school staff and teachers lived. Near the arroyo on the other side of the clinic were an old stand of cottonwood and a dirt road that continued west to Bita Hochee, where you could rejoin the pavement that ran south to Interstate 40. The Navajo called this place d'wooshi bitwa, which means something like “water that flows from the rock.” But there wasn't any flowing water, except sometimes in late spring when runoff from snow in the Chuska Mountains flooded the arroyo and much of the land around it.
