Navajo National Mon. CG
A long pull through to the right.
I did not get any pictures of our site in Canyon View, but there are a few sites that would fit a rig like ours. It was a very pretty park with lots of bushes and trees. A few with Cliffside views too. The ranger also said we could park in a long spot before the campgrounds or in the bus parking if we needed.
I will say this, we have been over most of the area in this huge Navajo Nation and there is almost no cell reception unless you are in one of the larger tiny towns. We barely had signal in Kayenta and strangely, while there were full bars of Verizon LTE showing in the campground in the Navajo National Monument, it was very spotty and it really only worked for calls, not data. Steve struggled working here. He also had an emergency problem come up that kept him working on the weekend so we had to cancel our plans to hike to the cliff dwellings that are here and then to go to Canyon de Chelly next.
Back to the beautiful scenery.We took a nice ride through the other, more popular park known mostly as Monument Valley. You pay to get in and you can then pay for guided Indian tours or drive yourself through a one way, decent dirt road. Any vehicle can drive it. No trailers though. You actually enter through Utah.
Some of the monuments had names, but I forgot most of them.
Large red sand dunes.
This one was my favorite, The Totem Pole Monument.
This boulder was so much larger than our truck!
Steve trying to put it back. So strong!
I caught this hawk flying just above me. Not bad for an iPhone.
A little wood structure of some sort.
Another balanced rock.
The sun was beginning to set and casting long shadows.
Love the patterns the wind made on the sand.
A rock with a face.
You could also take horseback rides or photography tours.
First there was this lonely cow in the middle of nowhere up here along the road. Then....
Geese that formed a line and crossed the road right in front of us!
