Monument Valley - Rocks, John Wayne, and the Weather
Well, moving away from the Grand Canyon was bound to be a bit of a let-down. But actually, it turned out that there are so many wonders in the Southwest, that we actually got wrapped up in the scenery around us and the stories. After a lunch at the Monument Valley resort (where you can get the best Navajo tacos anywhere), we went off for a guided tour, and learned about the native customs, the rocks and their significance, something about John Wayne and the other Hollywood types that have come and gone from Monument Valley. Then we were treated to some real treats - namely the weather, which played quite a role of its own in a majestic interplay with the rocks, the sand, our clothes and hair. It was really worth the trip!
