Monument Valley and Clouds

Here’s a treat from the thousands of photos I have taken in the last month. I have not found my workflow comfort zone yet. I have yet to decide how to organize all those photos. Taking photos is a lot like Brett Favre playing on Sundays. It is the preparation, organizing, editing, workflow schemes that are a drag. I keep putting those things off until a “rainy day”. Yeah, living in Austin, its hard to get rainy days.

 

Monument Valley is one of my favorite spots. There is a 17 mile loop around this national treasure and we only ventured on about 4 of it. There are also hiking opportunities guided by Navajos. It is somewhat off the beaten path, no nearby major cities or airports. Definitely long drives. It’s probably better off that way. You really do not want to see Monument Valley become a Yosemite National Park circus. I hear that Yosemite is paved, lots of shuttle buses, Masses of tourists. Its becoming somewhat of a joke with all the flocking at Yosemite. Monument Valley is an unique treat because it is not within reachable distance by the masses. Hopefully it will stay this way for many generations to come.
