Photo of the Week 2017 #35


Probably the most famous ruins in Canyon de Chelly is the White House Ruins. It got its name because of the nearly white walled center part of the dwelling that is covered in an ancient layer of plaster. Late in the afternoon we started the 2.5 mile round trip hike to the bottom of the canyon to catch a glimpse of this famous spot. Standing below the 600 foot cliff face, you sure feel pretty small. Along the hike we crossed paths with many of the local Navajo, even took a picture for two old friends who grew up in the canyon. All of them were jogging the trail. We asked why and they told us it was their favorite exercise place. I can completely see why. It is just a breath taking place, and quite a workout.
