Another place taken off the bucketlist! Canyon de Chelly has always been one of those places that ive wanted to check out but for some reason just hadnt got around to go to so when the chance presented itself i jumped on it right away.
The hike started on the opposite end of the White House cliff dwelling. Our Navajo driven truck took us to an "unknown name" canyon that led us straight down to the famous Spider Rock. The weather was perfect in the morning and becoming cloudy later in the afternoon. We were led by a knowledgable Navajo guide. Our first official brake came as we reached Spider Rock, we then proceeded on crossing the creek several times and mostly following the jeep road all the way to the White House. A few miles down the trail/road we stopped for a longer snack break and went exploring to an arch formation simply known as "The Window"....the climb to it was fairly steep and very much my type of environment. After coming back down we proceeded down the canyon and after a couple hours we reached our campsite for the night at an area called "Mother Nature Canyon." We had lunch, and were able to explore around including the awesome petroglyphs nearby. We as a group planned on bringing food for a "burrito potluck".......there was plenty of food to go around and the bonfire made it for a great fun night!
The following morning we took our time getting ready as we knew we had a short hike out, on the way we came across a couple ruin sites before reaching the White House. Once we reached and enjoyed the beauty and history behind this magnificent cliff dwelling a light rain started to fall on us as we made our way up to the rim.
