Monument Valley

After taking a short breath from the Grand Canyon, the next day we moved on to another absolute highlight Monument Valley. The ladscape is ideal for a Western movie, and so it is much used as background for that kind of movies. First, after coming there, we had a lunch in an restaurant run by the Navajo indians who still live there. We had a really local dinner: with beans and bread! Tasted very good, and again, the sizes are still big!

We took the tour which is run by the Indians. The indian can really tell something about the history of these rock formations. We also found out that it was very difficult to travel with a car, the rocky and sandy roads are really not good for a normal car. You really need a Jeep. But it is not forbidden to go with your own car!

The nature is really a miracle. Again moments of silence. What a views we could see in this trip! Luckely our Indian friend had brought water, because the temperature was about 35 degrees! Well, and for the rest, the photo's speek for themselves. Some tips: if you have a normal car, take the Indian trip, we saw some cars in trouble! And with the Indian trip you will hear the history of these rocks and the Navajo indians too.
