Canyone de Chelly

Many of these are a lot more impressive than the national parks.




Canyon de Chelly is one of my favorites. It doesn't have the grand scale of the Grand Canyon, but some of the cliffs are more impressive, and the scenery is breathtaking.

BTW - if you go, the name is pronounce as "Canyon de Shay" by the Anglo locals and "Canyon de Sheh-yeh'" by the Navajos and many Spanish speakers. The original Indian name was transcribed to Spanish by the early settlers, and the double 'l' sound is pronounced as a 'y', as in tortilla.
