Water running over the rock walls in Canyon de Chelly create this effect.
After driving along the rim of Canyon de Chelly I went into the bottom the next morning. You must have a Navajo guide take you because of the many ruins and sacred areas. Looking up gives you a much different perspective that looking over the edge. This shot is typical of the walls in color and shape. In the next couple of days I’ll post a few more.
The last stop of the day was at the Spider Rock overlook. This sandstone monolith is 800 feet tall and was the highlight of day one at Canyon de Chelly. Tomorrow I’ll be going down into the canyon,
