Despite the bus loads of tourists and commercialism that follows, Monument Valley in the Navajo Nation is still quite the place.  We drove the 17 mile loop dirt road and were glad we were in the truck and not the Prius!  We’re back in Goosenecks for the night where, despite the remoteness, we have great connectivity. Tomorrow it’s on to the Bisti Badlands of New Mexico.

  1. J & R,
    A movie club note: Your are in John Ford country, where he shot Stagecoach with John Wayne, plus many more. For was the greatest at filming horses and riders there ever was, he loved Monument Valley as a backdrop.

  2. Kate and I just saw John Wayne in Stagecoach a few days ago. Feasted on views of Monument Valley as it looked in 1949. Pretty much same as today.
