Want to see Hope Arch near Chinle

While in the Chinle area, I am hoping to photograph Hope Arch in the morning sun. I have pretty good directions to get there, but don't know if I need a guide or special permit? From what I have read, the guides seem to be focused on the Canyon de Chelly. I would love to hear from anyone who knows whether I need to get a guide and, if so, how to go about doing so. Thanks.

If the arch is in a remote area of the Navajo Nation as it appears to be, you need permission and likely a Navajo guide to go there. You would inquire about this in Chinle. The Navajo Nation is their private land and is not a park.
