Canyon de Chelly – Close-ups (3/3)

These were all taken using the digital camera on Tuesday at Canyon de Chelly National Monument near Chinle, Arizona.  These were all taken at the first overlook I stopped at as I approached the Monument from the northeast.  There will be more pictures from other overlooks posted in the coming days.

While some of the following photos might appear to have been taken from a greater distance if viewed alone, these were all what I saw down by my feet where I was walking!  It doesn’t look like this everywhere I’ve been but this particular spot was noticeable.

The yellow and reddish striped rock below is about the size of a microwave oven.
