Continuing my series highlighting the hard to ignore grandeur of this magical place. Check out my entire series. I even have some videos, e.g., ‘Hiking the White House Trail‘.

‘Coyote Rock’ is between the ‘Antelope House‘ ruins and the ‘Standing Cow‘ ruins — in the North Canyon.

The ruins to the right of the antelope frieze.


More of the historic aspect of Canyon de Chelly as opposed to its majestic grandeur.

I have already talked about the ‘Antelope House‘ ruins. This is the artwork from which it gets its name. In the North Rim.

Continuing the series but now on the historic side.

These ruins on the North Rim get their name from very realistically antelopes painted on the rock face to the left of the house (when looking at it). That is NOT a modern swastika. The orientation is wrong to begin with. The swastika is a very ancient symbol found among many different civilization. It invariably, as in this case, represents the circle of life.
