Olla House Natural Arch is close to Olla House, an extensive and well preserved Anasazi cliff dwelling. It is a cave natural arch with two openings eroded through DeChelly sandstone. The larger opening has a span of about 25 feet. Although this arch is likely not within the borders of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, it is within the Navajo Nation and this area is especially sensitive. Although a Navajo guide is required for any visitation, many guides will not take you because of the proximity to Olla House. Try to find a guide in Kayenta who is related to the family that lives nearby. [JHW photo.]
