It has been awhile since I have posted anything.
I was fortunate to visit this place.
|"Mittens" @ Monument Valley|
The emotions attached to the land, the people - are felt immediately when you enter the property.
Time stands still when you look out to the 'mittens' and to the other impressive buttes and 'sandcastles' around you.
This is Navajo land. Dine Biitah. (Among the People)
Everyone was welcoming. Friendly and helpful. We would talk with people to learn as much as we could in such a short time. Learn about the area and the culture, the people. It was all so interesting.
The hotel/land here is a simple MUST visit before you die.
The air is still with the exception of an occasional breeze at this moment. You can feel there is a storm off to the south.
Hiking through here is amazing. You feel you are almost on another planet or in a different time. That emotion of pride and awe fills automatically when looking out on the valley. Peaceful, quiet and so beautiful.
No photograph or video can capture this - even though I have done my best to try. There is a strange calling to this land. As if it is drawing you in; into the red valley - deeper into the paths once taken before you.
All I can do is click the shutter. . .
