Chris and his dad have a love of John Wayne movies. They have passed this love of westerns on to Carter. We were very close to Monument Valley where many westerns were filmed. It is managed by the Navajo Indian reservation. It was $20 to enter the site. There was a nice visitor’s center then you followed a very bumpy road to see the named monuments. The road was a 16 mile loop. We went only partway because the road was so bumpy but we saw the majority of the valley.
Behind you can see the road way below. It took you down and back to the right around a Mesa. Then you came back up this road to the top and out again. It just amazes us that people lived out here in the desert. There aren’t any trees and everywhere is brown. The kids saw their first tumbleweed rolling across the road and Carter looked for jack-o-lopes.
These are just off my phone. I have some better ones on my camera.
Here’s to the Duke,
