New Years at Canyon de Chelly

Recommended Posts

With a fresh coat of snow across Arizona on New Year's Day, I decided to head east from Flagstaff to Canyon de Chelly as I envisioned Spider Rock rising above the snow covered canyon.  It was cold sleeping in the back of the truck at -3F that night and standing on the rim in the morning, but the view was warmth for a photographer's soul.  


The barren tree against the snow really captured my eye.

This is quite different from the fall when the cottonwoods are a river of yellow.

A Navajo tale has it that the top of Spider Rock is white from the bones of the bad Navajo children whom Spider Woman has eaten.

Absolutely fascinating view for those of us not native to Arizona. Quite a dichotomy for us. Thanks.

Great place that few I know have seen, lucky enough to have taken mules on a 9 hour ride through the canyon. Life altering.
