We left town at two p.m. and arrived by sunset (or moonrise, depending on how you look at it.) I had no idea that Monument Valley, Arizona was less than a days drive away from Albuquerque.
Might as well be on the other side of the moon it is so otherworldly. I haven't heard so many different accents since the last time I visited Disneyland. Seems this national park has more international visitors than U. S. patrons.
But all superlatives are as useless as a cell phone in this landscape no matter what language you speak.
This famous hotel is called simply "The View" in some grand understatement.
The hotel appropriately blends into the scenery itself.
Look familiar? Many films have been shot here. For now we're leaving that all behind. . . .
Happy trails . . . .
I miss visiting with you!
Be back soon.
