Guests staying at the privately owned Spider Rock Campground are permitted to hike along a nice trail to the rim of Wild Cherry Canyon, one of Canyon de Chelly's many side canyons cut into the Defiance Plateau.

I enjoyed a quick morning explore and continued along the rim a bit beyond where the trail finally disappeared and I hadn't seen a cairn in a while. There's an alcove with a ruin on the opposite wall of the canyon and when I returned to the campground I asked the campground owner if it had a name. He informed me that the ruins had not previously been known and that they should bear my name as the discoverer! :y:

Just another reason to stay at Spider Rock Campground. They're good people! :)
