The "North Rim Drive" in Canyon De Chelly National Park has some wonderful views, the colours change all the time as the sunlight strikes the rock at different angles throughout the day. The best time to take photographs in this area is in the morning....More

There are some lesser sights on this side of the Canyon de Chelly, but that's not saying it's not worthwhile. There is the Mummy Cave and Antelope House and Massacre House. Best seen in the morning.

After checking out of my hotel I started on the north rim drive. Not as many stops as the south rim drive but better views of many of the ruins.

this is the shorter drive of the two available. There are several view points and some are a little longer walk than the ones on the south rim

We took this drive to the Mummy Cave overlook, the Massacre Cave overlook and Antelope House Overlook. The road and trails are in good shape but the trails are naturally uneven. The sites are wonderful and best explained by a Navajo guide.

The north rim drive is ok, but not even close to the south rim drive in terms of viewpoints and beauty.
