Photograph by Adriel Heisey, 2008. White House Ruin is harder to see now because of the additional vegetation. This is the only site in Canyon de Chelly that is accessible without a guide, and is by far the most visited ruin in the canyon. A hiking trail leads to the site from a parking lot on the rim above. A pedestrian bridge over the wash can be seen, as can the hiking trail. Tour trucks and jeeps park at the ruin-end of the bridge, although they ford the wash rather than crossing the bridge. Even outside the wash, plant growth is lusher today, in part because the site is not being grazed as intensively as it was in 1929.
