Desert varnish streaks the 800-foot wall above Antelope House Ruin in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. The ancient ruins are set in a secretive alcove near the canyon floor overlooking the Chinle Wash. The entire complex is made up of two main building areas that border a central type plaza structure. The area was once inhabited by the Kayenta Anasazi Indians from about 1050 AD to 1270 AD.
