Canyon De Chelly National Park



Canyon de Chelly became a national monument in 1931 through the cooperation of the Navajo Tribe and the National Park Service. The Navajo name for Canyon de Chelly is Tsegi which means rock canyon. Canyon de Chelly, Canyon del Muerto, and Monument Canyon are the three main canyons that make up the national monument. The canyons have been inhabited for over 2000 years by the Archaic, Anasazi, Pueblo, Hopi and Navajo Indians. As you explore the geologic wonders of the canyons, you will also learn about the culture of people who currently live in the canyon as well as those who have lived there in the past. The stories that can be told through the artifacts, pictographs, petroglyphs and ruins are amazing.

The vertical walls of the canyon range from 30 feet high at Chinle Wash to 1,000 feet at its highest point. The natural coloration of the rock formations is breathtaking especially as the sunlight moves across the canyon. A couple of interesting sites to visit are the White House Ruins and Spider Rock. Along with the awe inspiring beauty comes the possibility for hazardous events such as flashfloods, quicksand, and deep dry sand that you can encounter as you explore Canyon de Chelly.
