Sculpted sandstone walls and rich canyon bottoms of Canyons de Chelly and del Muerto were oases to prehistoric Pueblo culture and historic Navajo people.  Archaeologist Don Keller joins Navajo guides for four days in this inner canyon world. Four wheel drive excursions and trail hikes will take us to outstanding Ancestral Pueblo rock art and cliff dwellings. The canyon’s importance to the Navajo people is seen at trails and defensive sites, canyon-bottom fields, and exquisite pictograph panels.

Cost Includes: Transportation, 3 nights lodging, breakfast and lunches, guides and permits
