All of the sites in the Canyon de Chilly National Monument park just take your breath away. Sliding rock is just one of many equally amazing views in this park. Take a guided tour and it will be something you never forget for the rest of your life

YOU HAVE TO DRIVE AND CHECK ALL OF THE AREAS SO YOU GET TO APPRECIATE THE PANORAMA!! KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU ARE INA NA INDIAN RESERVATION, and the rules are to respect the people and their land. you will get to see roads and houses at the bottom, they belong to the Native Americans

This rock looks completely different when we passed it on the canyon floor. You must do both the floor and the rim drive for some amazing views!

Ground is mainly rock formations with occasional mud puddles. Gladly we found steps carved into the rock at strategic locations. If your balance or hiking ability are questionable, you might want to pass this area and go to another, more accessible, location.

View it during the South rim drive and during your floor canyon tour. I can't say enough about how brilliant these people were to build where they did and how long these homes were occupied. Don't forget those binoculars.

Multiple canyon features visible from here, couldn't really find the ruin, but the rock formations, view of the canyon bottom and split were terrific. Met some really nice people there, too!

Another beautiful point to look out upon in Canyon de Chelly. We never get tired of these canyons in the West. Just amazing.

Another of the nice South Rim overlooks that provide excellent shots of the canyon area and the cliff ruins.

You will enjoy the views of these ruins more if you have a pair of binoculars and a good camera. These ruins provide a great introduction to cliff dwelling and how much it must have cost the occupants to reside here.

This is one of the many overlooks we visited at the Canyon De Chelly. My wife and I enjoyed visited this overlook. It was a different view of the Canyon.
