Monument Valley Cowboy

    Newer Older

    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.

    Other pictures taken in our Red Rock Country trip can be seen here.

      great idea by the Park for photographers ... hopefully we'll not have to pay extra for the privilege in the future ...

      The cowboy and his horse certainly add a nice touch to the gorgeous scenery. The red coat really catches the eye!

      Stunning and iconic! I think he's waiting for John Wayne.

      Nice that he's got a red jacket on. The scenery is amazing, big sky country.
