The National Park Service and the Navajo Nation jointly manage Canyon de Chelly National Monument. One of the most interesting things about this National Monument is that people live within its boundaries! There is only one overlook, White House Overlook, with public trail access (White House Trail). All other canyon access must be with a Navajo guide.

A farm within the canyon.Can you spot the cliff dwellings?
