Whithe House turned out to be a fascinating piece of ancient architecture (see picture). A rewarding trip to me.
Arround noon we started for Monument Valley.
Since I am German my image of the "Wild West" from childhood on had always been stamped by old Western movies and - shame on me - cigarette commercials! Since a lot of them featured Monument Valley as location going there to me was a trip to the "real" West.
We found a free space at Mitten View Campground which is definitely among my five favourite campsites so far.
Later in the evening when we were back at our tent we sudenly heard loud percussion music. Intrigued we went to the Visitor Center and found an Indian percussion group performing a little jam session. Although they probably just played for the tourists I enjoyed it very much. It added to the marvelous view.
