Spider Rock rises 800 feet from the floor of Canyon de Chelly. The southern rim vantage point is 1,000 feet above the canyon floor. #canyondechelly #thenavajonationrocks #spiderrock #navajonation #wobblyotterisgoingplaces
Our last beautiful day on the Rez and we were blessed to be passed by ultra runner Edison Eskeets. To acknowledge the Navajo people who endured The Long Walk 150 years ago, Edison will run from Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona to Santa Fe, New Mexico, a distance of over 330 miles. He started running May 18 and will arrive in Santa Fe on June 1, 2018—the 150th anniversary of the Treaty of Bosque Redondo, which allowed the Navajo people to return to their homelands.
I had the opportunity to meet Travis Terry last summer. He was born into the Pima tribe and married a woman from the Navajo tribe. Terry is a veteran of the US military and an avid flute player. He teaches children to play and his flute-playing has been featured in several western-themed movies. He has played taps on his flute at Pearl Harbor to honor those who died during the infamous bombing on December 7, 1941. It was an absolute pleasure meeting him. #chinle #arizona #navajonation #pimatribe #travisterry #flute #musician #usmilitary #canyondechelly #culture #passport #passportstamps #adventuretravel #exploration #seetheworld #travellingthroughtheworld #unlimitedadventure #bestcities #creativetravelcouples #adventurouscouple #theglobewanderer #tourtheplanet #globaltrotter #ourplanetdaily #bestplacestogo #livetravelplanet #TLPicks #travelgram #travelmosquito #yourshotphotographer
Sunday Funday 🎨🌵 DIY Native arts n’ crafts with the ladies #navajonation #potterylove ✨ Headed up the South Rim of Canyon De Chelly with my awesome coworkers today for my first visit to Lucy’s Hogháán Gallery and Studio to learn how to carve and paint Navajo inspired pottery. 🎨 Had a great time meeting Lucy and her family, relaxing over intricate arts n’ crafts, and perusing Lucy’s amazing work in her gallery shop full of pottery, jewelry, and more. 💓 From what my coworkers have told me there’s a ton of great activities to do on our days off, ways to support local, and connect within the community. From pottery to jewelry making to rug weaving and more. Not to mention horseback tours in the canyon, guided hiking, and outdoor markets galore. 🌵 Overall pretty excited with my first pot.. still has to be fired but wanted to share and looking forward to our next visit to Lucy’s! 🙌🏽 Wishing you a Happy Sunday Funday from Navajo Nation Arizona and cultural inspiration wherever life takes you in the world! 🦋 #nativeamerican #pottery #navajopottery #canyondechelly #fourcorners #arizona #agameoftones #travel #travelUSA #traveldeeper #instatravel #travelgram #travelstoke #lovetheworld #roamtheplanet #supportlocal #travelblog #bloggerlife #womenwhoexplore #worldtravel #lovelife #livefree #desertlife #storyteller #traveltips #inspiration
At Spider Rock Campground on the southern rim of Canyon de Chelly in the Navajo Nation in Arizona. #thenavajonationrocks #canyondechelly #navajonation #spiderrockcampground #wobblyotterisgoingplaces
My first time visiting a big part of my Navajo heritage’s homelands.. First time being here but it sure seemed like my soul has been here before... ♥️ • • • #mountain #mountain #landscapephotography #landscapephoto #landscape #nature #naturephotographer #naturephotography #canyon #canyondechelly #canyons #travelphotography #navajo #nativeamerican #travelphotography #travelblogger #traveler
At Canyon de Chelly, I took the White House Ruins hike, 1 1/4 mile each way, down into the canyon to see the ruins. 1) The view from the canyon top as I started the walk down. 2) The view looking up as I approached the bottom, to the cliff top where I started. 3) The White House Ruins. What an amazing walk walking down paths carved out of the canyon walls. It wasn’t quite as much fun climbing back up again. 😊
Canyon tracking with people and doggies I love💕 Amazing Mother Nature in Arizona👍🏻 #tracking #canyondechelly #arizona #roadtrip2018

Edison Eskeets, WNPA's Navajo trader at @hubbelltrading , set off this morning from #CanyondeChelly National Monument on a 330-mile solo run. @themessage_therun serves to honor and acknowledge the Navajo people who endured the "Long Walk" 150 years ago. Edison will arrive in @cityofsantafe on June 1, the 150th anniversary of the Treaty of Bosque Redondo which allowed the Navajo to return to their homelands after 4 years of imprisonment at Bosque Redondo. Follow @themessage_therun for updates on Edison's incredible journey! . . #RepostSave @themessage_therun with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Edison is on his way!

That uncanny rock shape in the middle is canyon de chelly’s best-known feature called as Spider Rock. It is a sandstone spire that rises more than 700 feet from the floor of the canyon. It's named for Spider Woman, a key figure in Navajo lore. Just like in pictures and the canyon is so enormous in person. 🧡 . . . . . . . #spiderrock #canyondechelly #chinle #arizona #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #worldcaptures #wonderful_places #worldplaces #travellerspursuit
Well, we did it!! We left late, got a flat on the way up (which my husband patched, he’s amazing), we set up camp at 9:30 at night and woke up to fresh air and birds chirping on the Navajo Nation. We hiked Canyon de Chelly, met amazing Navajo painters, jewelry makers and sandstone carving artists. We hiked the Painted Desert, and hung out till the rangers asked us to leave. We got lost and drove in a circle for two hours but got to see the vast landscape, with almost no water and almost half a million people struggling in a food desert, where 11 grocery stores serve a land area the size of North Carolina. We came. We saw. We camped. Is that a t-shirt? I need it. 💕❤️ Till next time, the Rez, has a special place in our hearts. . . . . . #fooddesert #arid #water #farming #bashas #lack #desert #desertlife #phoenix #arizona #newmexico #utah #visitaz #anasazi #peoplewhohike #peoplewhodofunstuff #peoplewhowander
🐎Horseback riding yesterday at Canyon De Chelly was amazing! 3 hour excursion, my horse was Blondie (very fitting)💁🏼‍♂️...along the way my horse stopped and didn’t want to go any further until the guide pulled her along😂...the guide said the horses pick up on the traits of the person and let me tell you, if I was walking that trail I would have not wanted to go any further either 😂🙌🏼🌵 #horsebackriding #horses #horsetrip #travel #canyondechelly #arizona #roadtrip #fun #adventure #memories #vibes #desert #blonde #selfie #sun #sand #youtube #snapchat @sherimaryberry @13summersaeian @lgv0110 I’ve gotten better since our last horseback riding excursion lol

Seven months ago today @maruquitasalsipuedes and I were rolling into Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. Seems fitting I found this forgotten footage on my GoPro early this morning... #canyondechelly #harleywomen #womenwhoride #ridemotorcycleshavefun #motorcycleroadtrip #tbt #babesrideout5
Horseback riders leaving the Canyon as we arrived - the historic relevance of this monument and the serenity of a 4-wheel Jeep ride though the Cottonwoods with a Navajo guide who infused our time together with her knowledge and passion made for a memorable afternoon! #canyondechelly #navajonationalmonument #horseback
Still one of my favorite spots so just sit and enjoy the view #SpiderRock #CanyondeChelly #Chinle #😍
Last one I promise #canyondechelly
Spent the day exploring Canyon de Chelly #canyondechelly
This Catholic church near Canyon de Chelly is modeled after a traditional Navajo hogan. Inside, you'll find Navajo figurines alongside stations of the cross. #arizonaoddities #azoddities #chinle #canyondechelly #church #navajo #hogan #arizona

If you pinch and zoom you can see writing on the white house ruins in Canyon de Chelly. Never noticed till I shot with my 70-200mm lens. #nativeamerican #navajonation #rezlife #explore #instagramaz #conquerarizona #navajo #canon #photography #canyondechelly
Creator, I want to build my home near your fortress. #navajonation #canyondechelly #az #southwest

Explored the numerous pectographs at Canyon de Chelly. This drawing represents 2 horseman and a deer caught in a chase. Hunters would chase the deer until it got tired and collapsed. They would then proceed to suffocate it with corn pollin. This method was in order to avoid having no holes in the animal that could ruin its "purity." . . . . . #explore #navajo #navajonation #canyon #canyondechelly #arizona #adventure #explorers #travel #family #pectographs #history #drawings #vacation   #wander #nativeamericans # #photography #samsung #galaxys6 #camera
