Spider Rock by SheldonBranford on Flickr.Canyon de Chelly National Monument is located on a high plateau at an elevation of 6500 feet in northeastern Arizona near the center of the Navajo Reservation. It encompasses 130 square miles and is actually three red-walled canyons —- Canyon del Muerto, Monument Canyon and the namesake, Canyon de Chelly (pronounced “Shay”.)
Spider Rock is on the South Rim Drive, a 36-mile round trip.
These spectacular sandstone spires rise 800 feet above the canyon floor at the junction of Canyon de Chelly and Monument Canyon.
Navajo legend has it the Spider Woman lives on top and keeps the bones of her victims there. Beyond, the main canyon continues unseen for many miles.
