SKITTLEZ AND SCOOTER DO MONUMENT VALLEY (Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii)

Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii is Navajo for “valley of the rocks”.

DSCN1111 It was really cloudy and we knew the probability of rain was high, but we decided to go ahead and drive over to the Valley. And it did rain on us several different times during the trek. So some of my pictures are taken in the gray and rain and a couple of them were taken in the brief moments of sunlight we had.

IMG_1484 The sandstone structures in the Valley are amazing and I would think in the sunlight it would even be more incredible. But nature has many moods and it was neat to be able to view it in a different light.

We only look 88 pictures in Monument Valley but it’s still really hard to pick out just a few that we like. Going to have the same problem with Arches National Park.  But I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite cloud pictures.

  1. I wrote a comment this morning about how glad I was that you took the jeep tour...but my computer went bonkers and it didn't post it. I also wrote that I hoped you would get to see Monument Valley - and you did! You are sure getting to see some wonderful places. Makes me want to head west again.
