This was the highlight of my Monument Valley visit, and really the reason I signed up for this Southwestern Perspectives photo workshop. It did not disappoint. The views of Monument Valley from the top of course are other-worldly and quite spectacular, but the overall experience; the getting there, the supper of steaks cooked over the open fire, the overnight camp in a tiny tent, the “modesty bushes” provided by nature for personal ablutions … these were all moments in time that will be treasured forever.  Would I want to ride up and down that rocky footpath again in the 4×4 custom fitted Suburban, with thousand foot drops only inches from the spinning wheels?  Probably not, but I wouldn’t have missed any of it for anything.  Thanks to our wonderful Navajo guides, cooks and support team, and thanks to Derek and Suzanne, our workshop leaders, who put it all together.
