Wow....the drive from Page to cliff dwellers is amazing. Plan to go in the evening when you can see orange color on the canyons Simple spectacular. The cliff dweller is also good. We enjoyed the abrupt shaped rocks.

We stopped here when driving along the 89A. It is amazing how the cliff dwellers have utilised the fallen boulders to use as shelter. A very scenic spot, rich red colours of the boulders. Local trinkets were on sale at the roadside stall.

We almost didn't go to this site since it was a little out of the way. If your heading north on 89 just take the 89A turn. You'll cross the Navajo Bridge (which is pretty cool to stop and look too) and keep going for...More
