Monument Valley Rocks!

Monument Valley rocks! While it does indeed contain a large number of rocks, what I mean that is it an awe inspiring place to visit. I met Jonathan Nez, Vice President of the Navajo Nation and  Navajo Code Talker Peter MacDonald, Sr., one of 15 Code Talker veterans who are still living–all by being in the right place at the wrong time. I had no issues getting to the places I needed to go but I seemed to have trouble staying on schedule. As a result, I had those two opportunities to see men that I wouldn’t have, had it been on time. It was meant to be!

Shooting photos in the desert can be trying. Sticking to morning and late afternoon times helped some but sunset was normally around 8:50PM, so the days are long this time of year. Nevertheless, I was able to get a few shots that I liked. You can see them in the online gallery at http://carolfoxhenrichs.zenfolio.com/p169714595
