Spider Rock top and spire

Spider Rock, in Arizona's Canyon de Chelly (de Shay), is considered sacred to the Navajo and is associated with Spider Woman who taught the Dineh (Navajo) how to weave. Navajo legend says Spider Woman lives on top of Spider Rock.

Spider Rock is an "800 foot sandstone spire that rises from the canyon floor at the junction of Canyon de Chelly and Monument Valley" (visit National Park Service - Canyon de Chelly for more information).
