Hop In Your Car And Take The Incredible, 15-Mile Canyon de Chelly National Monument Scenic Drive In Arizona
You won’t always be in the mood for a long hike, so it’s nice when popular tourist destinations also offer a scenic driving option. Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Chinle boasts a 15-mile drive that showcases some of the most iconic natural features on its sacred lands. Since most of the park is inaccessible without a tour guide, this is a perfect way for the public to enjoy the splendorous views.
