Canyon de Chelly, AZ

From Mesa Verde, we drove to Canyon de Chelly, staying at the chaotic Holiday Inn* in Chinle where we waited ages to check in as the guy on the desk struggled (and failed) to find the booking details for a group of four Belgians. When we finally got our room and then got to the restaurant it was quite late and I was dying for a beer, only to find out we were staying on the Navajo reservation, meaning no alcohol!

Canyon de Chelly was great. As you can see from the photos, you can go on a truck trip inside the canyon (where there are more cliff dwellings and lots of petrographs and petroglyphs), and then drive along the rim, looking down at the places you've just been. The last photo is of a cool rock formation called Spider Rock - no idea why as it looks nothing like a spider to me.
