Canyon de Chelly National Monument is located in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. It preserves ruins of the early tribes that lived in the area. The canyon also sustains a living community of Navajo people, who are connected to a landscape of great historical and spiritual significance. Access to the canyon floor is restricted, and visitors are allowed to travel in the canyons only when accompanied by a park ranger or an authorized Navajo guide.

It is possible to see wonderful views of the canyon from both the north and south rims. This view of the canyon is based on a photo I took at the Antelope House overlook.
