Hi there, A quick question about comparison/ your opinions about Mesa Verde National Park versus Canyon de Chelly.

I read somewhere that Mesa Verde has the best ruins in the country, but the description of the rugged setting of Canyon de Chelly / Canyon del Muerto sounds very interesting. White House Trail (Canyon de Chelly National Monument) Canyon de Chelly National Monument near Chinle, Arizona, has some of the best preserved Anasazi ruins in the southwest, as well as my favorite trail in the greater Colorado Plateau area: White House Trail.

I think this is mainly for two reasons: spectacular views and an impressively built trail. Hovenweep is also great.
