- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Spider Rock rise 830 feet above the canyon floor. This sacred place of the Navajo is the lair of the mythical Spider Woman (Na'ashje'ii Asdzaa). In the story of the “Third World”, the Spider Woman descended to the top of Spider Rock. From here she spun her silken web and draped it to the ground. She lived in a crack between the two rocks and came out every day, snaring naughty children, and snatching them up to eat. Other variations of the legend tell that it was Spider Woman who taught her people the fine art of weaving.
