Monument Valley

Monument Valley
This week, I've been sharing pictures from my vacation.  Earlier, I shared pictures from my visit to Arches and Zion National Park in Utah.  The last stop on our week long road trip was Monument Valley.  We took a detour along the way to visit the north rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona.  I was surprised to see a small herd of buffalo by the road and it reminded me of Yellowstone.

Then it was on to Monument Valley.
We had a great view from our hotel balcony.

Sunrise was spectacular!

Monument Valley was simply beautiful.
Stunning landscapes in every direction!

Even though there were gorgeous vistas all around me, I couldn't help but notice this cairn someone had made.  I stopped to take a picture and this lizard hiding under the rock pile surprised me!

It was a fun trip full long days of driving and hiking, but absolutely worth it for the beautiful beautiful scenery.  It gave me a chance to practice some landscape photography which I don't have much experience with.  A friend let me borrow his wide angle lens for my camera, and it was really helpful.  If you're interested, you can see more pictures from this trip.

Do you like to take road trip vacations?  What was one of your favorites?
