Monument Valley, Utah
It is nothing what I remembered from a trip 17 years ago.
when I was there 17 years ago we drove through real fast.
Didn’t even stop for pictures.
I really thought there was NOTHING there. Therefore I told my sweet, sweet man there’s nothing to see.
Well, we booked an overnight because it was a good resting place on our way to Arches National Park.
Boy was I glad we decided to stay over night.
Look at our view…
From the advice of Ingrid from Live Laugh RV
She told me all about Mile Marker 13.
It is where Forest Gump stopped running in the movie.
Monument Valley is famous as a backdrop to many movies and Ford and Chevy Truck Commercials.
It was very windy and dusty the day we arrived so…
not many pictures were taken.
The horses stayed still while the dust cleared…
This Hogan was near our hotel. It’s a traditional Navajo Dwelling. I saw so many as we drove through the Navajo Reservation. Some are even modernized but still have the same concept. The door must face towards the East for the rising sun to bring wealth and good fortune.
Our hotel provided a cottage/cabin. So cool!
Onto Arches National Park for my next post.
Until next Time ~Nancy
