Additional Details:
The wonderful Canyon de Chelley (pronounced, de Shaye) is in the heart of the Navaho country; a deep, broad fissure in the table-land, walled on both sides with red sandstone. The walls vary in height 20 feet to 800 feet. Within a distance of some twenty miles, which is nearly the length of the canyon, there are about 150 cliff-dwelling ruins, some of which are of very large villages. The canyon is a marvel of scenic beauty and grandeur
