Canyon de Chelly National Monument is an amazing place. Two beautiful narrow 1,000 feet deep canyons converge about three miles from the park headquarters. Canyon de Chelly runs east-west, and Canyon del Muerto runs northwest.
As you proceed up the canyons from the park headquarters the first set of ruins you encounter are called First Ruin and Junction Ruin. Both are fairly small. First Ruin had ten rooms and two kivas. Its sister site is called Junction Ruin and it is located on the north side of Canyon de Chelly, where Canyon del Muerto branches off. Thus the name, Junction Ruin. Junction Ruin had fifteen rooms and one kiva. Both of these cliff dwellings were developed during the period called Pueblo III.
Canyon de Chelly typifies the colorful Southwestern Indian country. Adding to this atmosphere are the present-day Navajo Indian homes that are scattered along the canyon floors.
