Great for taking photos. Make sure you get this stop on your tour of the Canyon. I did the 4 hour tour with Beauty Way and loved every second of it. My parents did it again more recently and are planning a September trip.

We viewed the ruins of this building, which was occupied by a Navajo artist in the early 1800s, from the overlook on the Canyon's north rim. They remind you just what a fantastic place this is. It is a relatively short walk from the parking lot to the overlook but quite rough so care is needed.

This site can only be visited by taking a tour with a Navajo guide into the canyon. Our guide did an excellent job talking about this building.

Stunning example of Chcoan culture. We saw from inside the canyon and from overlook and I recommend doing both. The walk to the overlook is not easy so wear good shoes.

We had an opportunity to stop here as part of our Antelope House Tour. This is the family homestead and I cannot imagine the awe of waking up here every day. This family has lived here for generations and is very knowledgable about the history of the Canyon and is willing to share their stories with visitors. We purchased some... More

Antelope House Ruin takes its name from the many depictions (petroglyphs and pictographs) antelope adorning the steep walls of the canyon overlooking the ruins. Occupied from A.D. 1050-1270, it is one of the ancestral homes of the Hopi. Simply put, it is a dazzling reminder of our history. Go here. No foolin'!!

Ruins close to ground level. You can get close enough to take some really good pictures. With the right guide you'll also get a lesson in echoes.

As we travelled along the canyon floor. Our tour guide pointed out all of the ruins and petroglyphs. It just brings into focus how these people lived and how they made most of protecting their lifestyle. I hope these ruins are well protected for many generations to come.
