Canyon de Chelly is a remote National Monument located in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. The name chelly (or Chelley) is a Spanish borrowing of the Navajo word Tséyi, which means "canyon" or “inside the rock”.

Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Parks, as it consists entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land which remains in the control of the Navajo Nation and is home to the canyon community. Access to the canyon floor is mostly restricted, and visitors are allowed to travel in the canyons only when accompanied by a park ranger or an sanctioned Navajo guide.

In the area that I found this collection of cottonwood trees, you could tell that fast traveling flood waters stripped the trees of their lower branches. Even though these are water loving trees, I wondered how they could ever take the occasional flood forces that also carved and patterned the canyon walls.
