Arizona 2017

Our 8-day trip: we flew to Phoenix and drove as far north as Canyon de Chelly, doing a lot of sightseeing along the way.

 
Canyon de Chelly rim
Oct 16, 2017

It took us half a day to see the overlooks along the rim.
Canyon de Chelly National Monumen is considered one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in North America. Among its sites are several hundred Ancestral Puebloans villages built between 350 and 1300 A.D. Today the Canyon sits in the heart of the Navajo Indian Reservation and is still home to many Navajo who live there.

Canyon de Chelly tour
Oct 15, 2017

We toured the inside of the Canyon with Thunderbird Lodge Tours (http://thunderbirdlodge.com/tours/) The tour took an entire day. This album shows only the sites in Canyon De Chelly (including those before the Junction). Some of those we also photographed from the rim (see the 2nd half of our rim album: http://ikarushka.fotki.com/around_north_america/arizona-2017/canyon-de-chelly-rim/?view=roll) There are separate two albums about the sites in Canyon Del Muerto.
