White House Overlook is Canyon de Celly's most popular overlook since it lies opposite the famous White House Ruins, an 80-room settlement scenically situated beneath a graceful, slightly overhanging cliff streaked with desert varnish.
White House Ruin stands out above lower ruins in a sandstone cave. These ruins were built by the Anasazi people. Anasazi is Navajo for "the ancient ones." This is the only place in Canyon De Chelly where non-Navajos may hike unescorted into the canyon. The Park Service has improved an old Anasazi trail from the Canyon's edge to its bottom.
Originally, the entire ruin was available, but after tens of thousands of tourists who chose to take a souvineer, the ruin has been fenced off. The ground below the ruins that was once tiled with pot shards discarded by the uphill residents, is now bare dirt.
