Navajo Nation

NAVAJO NATION

Monument Valley is located in the Navajo Nation. I discovered the Valley in Ernst Haas images in the 1960’s and dreamt of visiting one day. It wasn’t until 2006 when that dream was realized.

On my Rich Green Photography Facebook Page this week I posted 2 interesting links – the first is Google Is In Total Denial About Its Huge Problem With Google+. The 2nd is fun – Chinese Scientists Say They’re Close to Building a Real Transporter.

Arizona Highway….

…in a straight line.
Coming from the east coast where curves are
the norm, is it amazing to drive for miles and miles
in a straight line.

The road less traveled is the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
If you want to avoid the crowds of the South Rim, head north!


Lost in Arches National Park

Arches National Park

Jason reminded me that on our family vacation out west, he and I got lost in Arches National Park, Moab, Utah. I wanted to take a nighttime photo of the Delicate Arch. The arch is 1 mile walk from the car. We trekked  in daylight but couldn’t find our way back at night. We had to literally call out “Help”! Someone, who wasn’t lost, came to our rescue and guided us back to our car.
Returning to the hotel, I found Deb (I state this “politely”) unhappy. She was “thisclose” to calling the police. Secretly I think she was happy I had a ton of scratches on my legs from the thick bushes Jay and I walked through on our “lost” journey. (The photo above is from the night.)

Pie Town

Pie Town, Arizona

While on the road in Arizona, we passed through “Pie Town”.
It was closed so we couldn’t buy any pie.
