Part 2: Canyon de Chelly

Our second destination was Canyon de Chelly.

The next morning, we visited with one local artist who shared his traditions with us by explaining the symbols he paints onto rocks from the canyon.

Then we entered the canyon with our Navajo guide for a tour. Notice the petroglyphs on the wall behind us.

We saw petroglyphs, pictographs, and from afar, various cliff dwellings in Canyon de Chelly.

We encountered this wild west scene on our way out of the canyon.

Our next destination was Mesa Verde, Colorado, where we got the chance to enter into the cliff dwellings. That visit is documented at Part 3 of this Travelogue.
