  • We were lucky to catch Spider Rock with the afternoon sun out. It really lights up and the shadow it casks is really beautiful. It was cloudy both days so we were lucky to get the sun to shine in...  more »
  • High lite of our visit to canyon de chelly
  • Came here, allured to re-live the experience and scenery from the classic movie McKenna's Gold. I was not disappointed!! There is no gold, but the Golden Ray's of rising sun, the shifting of the long shadoes of towering rocks and formations were enchanting. One can hear the sound of the river 800 feet down below. The view of the canyon from this location is extensive on all the three (two upstream and the downstream branches). The cliff is 700 feet steep drop, so caution needs to be adopted for going to the edge.
  • The overlook for Spider Rock is one of the best overlooks in all of Canyon de Chelly. A must-visit spot. Spider Rock is not only a place of interest, but it has spiritual and historical significance to the Navajo.
