The White House Ruins Trail is one of the rare hikes in Canyon de Chelly where a Navajo guide is not required. The Trail is 1.5 miles each way - 1000 feet in vertical drop The trail - traversing many different layers of rocks.
The views are just amazing ... spectacular ... breathtaking ... awesome! The canyon bottom is beautiful and green. Cottonwood tree leaves shimmer in the sun and sheep wander about, herded by their energetic dogs, horses running free. The Silence, the Wind, the Peace, the Power, mountain goats and hawks, and the different colors and shapes of the rocks, all give a different perspective to the shear cliff walls and vegetation.
The feeling in the canyon is very different from what you see at the top. It is a great experience, and with little imagination one can really think to be transported in the old Far west in this natural wonder where indians ride their wild horses in these mountains.
