Spider Rock

Spider Rock, sacred place of Spider Woman who gave the Dineh weaving and other skills, stands in the upper reaches of Canyon DeChelly. The Sandstone pinnacle is capped by a harder white sandstone. Although not available to the general public, in the 1980's climbers reached the summit and lunched in the shade of the juniper trees that grow there.
At the left of its base, a vehicle trail continues up the canyon parallelling the stream. that is bordered in Russian Olive trees. This view is from the rim.
