I had always wanted to go to Monument Valley.
Of course, these days when contemplating a visit you spend a considerable time researching the best time to visit, how to get there, accommodation etc.
However, there wasn’t a lot of information on the internet. It seemed a bit strange, but we put it down to looking in the wrong place. It happens you know !
Even the hotel concierge at the closest town was a little coy. Somehow you get the feeling that something is wrong, but of course you have no way of working it out. He did tell us that the park closed at 8.00 pm and it was already 6.00 pm. The evening was closing in and I was anxious to catch the light and the park was 24 miles away. But we arrived in good time and prepared to pay and drive through the park.
The guy in the little white box said Mr Trump closed it and if we wanted to visit we had to pay $90 per person for an hour tour.
We were most disappointed, like many others I was an international visitor, we had invested considerable expense to be there, accommodation, extra mileage etc… and I for one was miffed at the lack of information online and at the hotel.
So my photos are taken from the restaurant area…. but I really wanted the dirt on my sandals.
So as you can see by the photos I captured it.
The light was magnificent and I managed to miss the tourists….. Oh, yes, that’s me too.
