Monument Valley Cowboy

This picture was taken this morning at John Ford Point in Monument Valley, Arizona. This young cowboy, apparently in the employ of the Navajo Tribal Park, came down on his horse and posed out on the point. I wish I hadn't seen him checking his smart phone on the way down. Still, it was a nice prop provided by the park, and certainly adds to the image. Monument Valley is a stunningly beautiful place, that doesn't feel over developed or over crowded. It's my third time there, and by far the best weather we've experienced, with pleasant temperature, beautiful clouds and, blissfully, no howling winds. I plan on coming back again, just because I enjoy the experience so much.
