MONUMENT VALLEY

 

From Brisbane, Australia to Flagstaff, Arizona via LA and Phoenix is a long haul. We were jet lagged and weary when we collected our hire car and drove into town to a motel.

Next morning, bright and fresh, we headed down Route 66 and peeled off north to the Utah/Arizona border and the spectacular landscape of Monument Valley National Park.

  1. I love your photos. They are great. We were fortunate to have our third trip there earlier this year (but it will be the end of July before I getting around to putting up a post on it).

  2. John, your photographs are wonderful. We live in California and have never been able to get to these places. So, thank you for taking all the photos.
    Do you sell the photos to artists who might want one as a reference?
