It's a an area with fabulous scenery that's not so well known as many others in the southwest, probably because it's in the middle of the Navajo Reservation. It's definitely worth the trip, tho. AFAIK you can still take pictures off the rim, but you can't go into the canyon without a Navajo guide--evidently sort of a local cottage industry.
