Monument Valley

Jeri's post about the Southwest reminded me of a winter drive I took through Monument valley a couple years ago.






There's lots of wide open spaces and plenty of time to enjoy the scenery while getting from Point A to Point B. I always feel like that part of the country is where I truly belong, but never worked out the logistics of living there.

How amazing a sight. I wonder if while you're driving if there are any other cars on the stretch of road? I picture a deserted highway and silence except for your car.

Yes, there is/was very little traffic in that area, especially that time of year being outside tourist season. Probably saw five other vehicles in two hours of driving through there. Some of it was traditional Navajos driving pickups, and quite a few of the drivers in vehicles I 'met' on the highway waved at me out of habit.

The pictures are beautiful. I have never been there but we see it a lot in Westerns.

Yes, there's certain areas where John Ford did filming on location.

I was there in the 1970s---hopefully it hasn't changed a bit!!

Because most of that area is Indian reservation, it's still close to being a third world country - more people have electricity than the 1970s, but not all, and there are no landline phone or even cell phone coverage (and no Internet) because the population is so sparse the phone companies aren't interested.
