Planned Trip: Canyon De Chelly - April Friday 4/23 (optional) - Main Trip is 4/24 thru 4/26

Canyon De Chelly - April 2010 - Don't Miss This One !

Yah ah tee hay!


Our 4th and final trip to Canyon De Chelly until 2012!  

Friday April 23rd will be an optional day with planned trips possibly to Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, Winslow AZ along the way.

The fun begins on Saturday the 24th and ends on Monday afternoon the 26th when we say goodbye until 2012.

In 2007 many called it the BEST off-road trip they have ever done ! Our 1st trip was in the spring, this one will be in the fall to see the changing of the summer colors to fall colors. A truly different perspective of the Canyon yet with the 80 or so water crossings just for fun !

In 1863, while the War Between the States raged in the East, legendary" Indian fighter" Kit Carson led a brutal campaign against the Navajo of the Southwest, whose raiding parties were seen as a threat by the United States government. One Navajo stronghold was Canyon de Chelly (pronounced "d'SHAY," from a Spanish mispronunciation of the Navajo name for the area, Tsegi), a colorful canyon near present-day Chinle, Arizona. Beginning in 1864, Carson, with the eager assistance of the Navajo's traditional enemies, marched into the beautiful, steep-walled canyon to destroy cornfields, hogans (circular, domed structures made of mud and logs), and orchards. Without food or shelter, the Navajo surrendered. Thousands of them were forced to march 300 miles eastward across New Mexico to a parched reservation where they were held as prisoners of war.

Throughout the five years on the reservation at Fort Sumner, the Navajo's begged to be allowed to return to their land. Of those who survived the grueling "Long Walk," only half saw the day their people returned to the canyon in 1868. Today there are 80 families living in the canyon much as they did 100 years ago.

The national monument, which actually includes Canyon del Muerto, Monument Canyon, and Canyon de Chelly, has housed people for more than 1,500 years. Numerous pictographs, petroglyphs, and ruins tell the tales of the people who once made their homes here.

Although its history is marred by incidents of massacre, forced relocation, and abuse, its beauty is subtler and more profound than that of other parks in the U.S., and its intricacies are entwined in the culture that calls it home. Highlights of the Canyon are Spider Rock, an 800-foot spire said to be the home of "Spider Woman," and White House Ruins of an ancient dwelling. Unlike Jeep Jamboree's where you wont get camping in the canyon next to ruins and you wont get the Navajo story telling and singing and you pay $250 per person, our trip has all the deluxe extras and is only $225 per Jeep which goes to pay guides, camping, tips and permits.   For a family that is lots of money you will save with Jeep Expeditions, the #1 Expedition Club in the US, perhaps anywhere !
