He Hideth My Soul

Cliff dwelling at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona.

Cliff Dwelling at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona.

A few years ago, my husband and I were privileged to visit the American Southwest and tour several Anazasi (Navajo for “the ancient ones”) ruins, including cliff dwellings. I was amazed at how many of these ruins there are. The ones my husband and I toured were located at Canyon de Chelly  (pronounced “shay”) National Monument, Arizona; Aztec Ruins National Monument at Farmington, New Mexico; and Chaco Culture National Historic Park in New Mexico. A year later we visited the more well-known cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

Throughout the month of February, I would like to feature some of the pictures that we took along the way as well as a little travel story about Canyon de Chelly.

Today’s picture is one of many dwellings tucked into the cliffs of Canyon de Chelly. The entire time we were at this national monument, the chorus to Fanny Crosby’s hymn, “He Hideth My Soul,” kept popping up in my head.
