We drove into Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park yesterday a couple hours before sunset. Every direction we looked there was something more spectacular to see. So I'm basically just going to post pictures with some comment here and there. I think I mentioned there is a $20 fee to get in, the pass is good for four days. Heading up the road towards the entrance and hotel.
A sign of the times I guess. This is on the building where you pay to go in.
Just another view of the desert. Red rocks, blue sky and green vegetation. What more could one ask for. The rock on the left is East Mitten. That is the Jeep's nose driving out the road. Today he looks kind of pinkish. Lots of dust in the air from the traffic.
Here are East Mitten and West Mitten and a Navajo women set up to sell jewelry.
A better view of West Mitten - and of all the lawyers in the rocks.
Just the gravel, here for a stretch, and more scenery.
Saw some horses running along the road. My guess is they are not wild just free range.
He made it to the top of the mound. There are two more to the left of the mound.
And another one down the road a bit.
I wonder if the people who live around here even see the beauty of this any more. Talk about seeing forever. This is from "John Ford's Point." The classic scene from many of his movies. His first film here was Stagecoach.
Bill admiring the view.
The view without Bill. When we were at this particular place there were about six tour trucks here. So it was hard to get scenery minus people. Mostly European and Asian. Here in the campground about half of the RVs are rentals.
And I'm going to stop here 'cause I imagine it's getting tiring - so much red rock. The pictures don't do it justice. I have a lot more to share. And we went back this morning just after sunrise. Looked so different.
