The south rim of the Canyon de Chelly is 18 miles in length and with the return drive, it is a total of 36 miles. Along the rim, they have turnouts where you can stop and take photos.
This is an example of a Pueblo hut they had at the entrance near the visitor center.
This is the Tsegi Overlook. First one looking to the west and the second toward the east. Trees definitely do not add any greenery to the scene. Very brown and drab colored.
White House Overlook.
If you look off my right shoulder you will see some ruins in the dark area and below the dark area. There is a 1 1/2 mile trail that goes down the canyon to those ruins. This is the only trail allowed to travel without paying for a guide. Tomorrow, I will walk that trail and take photos of those ruins close up.
Face Rock Overlook.
Spider Rock Overlook.
Unfortunately, I cannot get the true look with the correct depth, but you get the idea that the canyon is very deep. Time to call it a long day.
See you later.
