Canyon de Chelly National Monument was established on April 1, 1931 as a unit of the National Park Service. Located in northeastern Arizona, it is within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation and lies in the Four Corners region.
Canyon De Chelly is a National Monument. It is located in the north east part of Arizona, near the town of Chinle. There are Native Americans living in the canyon with farm lands. All tours are jeep driven tours conducted by the Native Americans. I only know of one trail which visitors to the park are allowed to hike down, but you have to stay off the farm lands once you reach the bottom. I have hiked this trail twice. You can freely drive around the rim of the park stopping at various locations for photo opportunities. One of the attractions of the park is the ancient ruins that still remain. The ruins are mind blowing. How did they build “all that stuff” so far off the ground. One wrong step and you will be killt. Splat, your ass is grass—Coyote meat.
These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
