Canyon de Chelly rim

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.

The top of the taller spike of Spider Rock

is white from the sun-bleached bones of Dine (Navajo) children who did not behave themselves!
