Canyon de Chelly, (The Story behind the scenery)
Canyon de Chelly is a labyrinth of sheer-walled canyons, spectacular in their beauty and enthralling in their history. Now home to the Navajo, Canyon de Chelly once harbored the mystery-shrouded culture of the Anasazi -- ancient people of the canyon's many ruins.
Canyon de Chelly National Monument, located in northeastern Arizona and first set aside in 1931, preserves ancient canyon wall caves and ruins of indigenous villages built between A.D. 350 and 1300.
