Canyon de Chelly (2/5)

These are more photos taken on Tuesday at Canyon de Chelly (pronounced de SHAY) National Monument in northeast Arizona.  These were all taken with my smartphone camera.  Close-ups, taken with the digital camera, will be posted later.

Note the sign in the photo below warning people not to throw children or pets down into the canyon (we don’t want the farmers working below to be in therapy the rest of their lives).

In all seriousness, this was one of only a very few “built up” observation areas.  In the vast majority of places you could walk right up to the edge.  If you kept going you MIGHT be lucky enough to have a rock ledge not far below which would catch you, but in many, many places you would not be so fortunate.
