  • Because of the Ansel Adams photos the White House has become a symbol of Canyon de Chelly and it is a Must see.

  • I can’t find out why this overlook is closed. The visitors center staff told me that the site needs repair but the site is in excellent condition (strange). In the past, it was the only trail that allowed visitors to enter the canyon without a guide. Currently (March ‘22 ) no one can enter canyon without a guide. Maybe closing this “Overlook” was a plan to employ more guides? DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING VALUABLE IN YOUR CAR AT ANY OVERLOOK, lots of theft from vehicles.
  • Great views from the overlook. There's clearly marked trail here to get down to the ruins. I believe this is the only trail you can take on your own, without a guide, you're on Navajo land here. Always take plenty of water with you.
