Canyon de Chelly is quite unlike Monument Valley. Where Monument Valley is stark and golden desert, Canyon de Chelly is pink and warm. It is one of the most appealing of Arizona’s canyons. This park boasts towering sculpted rock formations, sheer and colorful cliffs, and picture-postcard scenery. The only modern-day touch is that, along with the name of the weaver, you’ll also occasionally find a Polaroid photograph of the weaver attached to the ticket. You also can browse through exquisite jewelry, sandpaintings, books, and trinkets or even pick up food supplies if you plan to camp in the area. Groceries are sold in the front room. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Flagstaff. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
