Canyon de Chelly National Monument
Description - Northeast Arizona is home to the reservations of the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe. In addition to being part of the famous point where four states - Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico - come together to share a common border, the region is characterized by sweeping plateaus, towering mesas and scenic canyons. It is home to well-known attractions such as Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, Petrified Forest National Park, the Painted Desert and Lake Powell. Miles of painted desert and dramatic terrain form some of the most picturesque sections of the state. Its rolling landscape, endless vistas, and dramatically colored canyons offer numerous outdoor opportunities.

Climate - Summers are generally hot with temperatures in the 90's and occasionally in the low 100's. In winter the highs are often in the 40's or 50's, but can be much colder with highs only in the 20's. Annual rainfall is 9 to 10 inches with 40% occurring as thunder storms in the late summer. There is occasional snow in the winter. High winds can happen any time of year. Humidity is usually low.

Report: I took a motorcycle trip out to Holbrook Arizona and then on to Sun Valley (where I just bought land, see my website!)... I love this part of the country... diverse peoples: Navajo, Apache, Hopi, Latino... great scenery, lots of interesting little hangouts.... check out Holbrook, the Hopi truck stop along I-40 (for a cheap meal that serves generous portions!) Sun Valley has a nice petrified wood place, a great knife store and a livestock auction place... at 5000 feet the area is cooler than a lot of Arizona... and Holbrook is an excellent access point for a lot of diverse areas...
