There are many unique formations in Canyon De Chelly and around the outside of the canyon. The best vacation we ever had, was our trip to Canyon De Chelly, and the four corners, on the navajo reservation. Some call it an indian reservation, but today it is more like an Native American Nation. Included in the area of the Navajo Nation is the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, in which many, many movies have been made since the beginning of the Westerns,
Most think of it as a National Park, because it is operated by the National Park Service, but all the employees we have seen, were all Navajo, living on the Reservation.
Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Park service. It is entirely Navajo Tribal Trust Land owned by the Navajo Nation and is home to the canyon community, while park matters are administered by the National Park Service. Access to the canyon floor is restricted, and visitors are allowed to travel in the canyons only when accompanied by a park ranger or an authorized Navajo guide. The only exception to this rule is the White House Ruin Trail.
