It is called the ‘First Ruin‘ because it is the first major ruin you encounter when you enter the Canyon, at floor level. It takes about an hour to get there on horseback. This was us on horseback. We waited for the jeep to drive away before getting closer.

Continuing the series on Canyon de Chelly but now on the historic side as opposed to its undeniable grandeur.

The name tells it all when it comes to these ruins and they are, as such, the second best known of the ruins, after the easily accessible ‘White House’ ruin. These ruins are prior to the ‘junction‘ when the Canyon splits into ‘North‘ and ‘South‘. It is about 45-minutes on horseback and about 10 by jeep.
