This is what the entrance to Canyon de Chelly looks like from across the road — from a small hill. That is how you enter the Canyon by ‘jeep‘ or horseback. You can see the tire-tracks very clearly on what is really a dried up river bed. The ‘Junction’ where the Canyon splits into North and South is about 2-miles in from here.
I took this from the supposed ‘Navajo Long Walk’ memorial. It is a small tower of stone. I was told that locals build it over time by just putting stones on top of stones. I will show you that and talk about it in another post. Check out my link for the ‘Navajo Long Walk‘. Very sad. It started pretty close to the Canyon given that the Canyon lies in the very heart of Navajo land.
