Another picture from the ‘White House’ Ruins. The ruins are to the left, behind the fence — at the back. This is looking down towards the trail (at top), the dried riverbed further to the right. On the way back I walked the riverbed. I have a video of hiking down to these ruins — the only hike you can do without a licensed Navajo guide.

P.S., Notice the unmistakable ‘Planet of the Apes‘ figure on the rock face — right in the middle.

Continuing my series on the historic aspect of Canyon de Chelly as opposed to its majestic grandeur.

I have already talked quite a bit about this ‘White House‘, the best known and most visited of the ruins, as well as posted this video on the hike to the ‘White House’ ruins. Just wanted to share this picture.
