White House Ruins

Canyon de Chelly

White House Ruins, an 80-room settlement scenically situated beneath a graceful, slightly overhanging cliff streaked with desert varnish. The hike down to these ruins zigzags down the flank of the canyon about a mile. It is the only area visitors are allowed to walk inside the canyon. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
