The White House Ruin Overlook gives a great view of this impressive cliff dwelling. Though not nearly as well preserved or intricate as those at nearby Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado, it in nonetheless stunning due in part to its superior setting. The dwellings at Canyon de Chelly are lower in the cliffs and why not with that big river flowing through the valley? Ancient Puebloans built and lived in this structure around the year 1000 AD and is named after the long wall within that is colored with white plaster. It is tough to get a photo of this without shadows so perhaps best to shoot it in shade to cut down on contrast. Either way, you'll need a good zoom to get a decent close-up from the overlook.
Directions: On the South Rim Drive.
