We visited this canyon with our Navajo guide, Leander Staley. I can't even begin to describe how wonderful this journey was but it's something everyone should do. There are numerous ruins and pictographs to see, including Antelope House. Wow!

I loved the stories about the canyon, and how it got it's name. We were below in the canyon, looking up at the ruins. Standing in working farms

Our guide Ron took us on a all day tour of Canyon DeChelly.(pronounced DeShea) We stopped at so many beautiful sites and ruins. He had a very quick wit and made the trip loads of fun for our entire 16 person open air truck tour. He stopped many times without asking and lots more when we asked. We had a delicious lunch provided by the tour group, Thunderbird Lodge. It was a small enough group to make it a wonderful day, Our many thanks to Thunderbird Lodge Tours and Ron Yazzi

Beautiful scenery like the rest of it. Love the natural viewpoints, without metal railings everywhere (but be careful if you are afraid of heights!) Hard to imagine the cruelty on those cliffs.

We toured Canyon del Muerto in order to see Spider Rock. Oscar Bia's Ancient Canyon Tours took us there on a 4 hour tour. A must to see if you are touring Canyon de Chelly.
