Mystical Monument Valley

The eternal essence of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Utah is one of my favorite places.

I’ve been there many times and have had several trips with Navajo guides into the restricted areas.

A timeless and outer worldly place.

  2. Your images are breathtaking, Tom — absolutely stunning! Have you considered writing a story about your experiences there? I think your photos are worthy of National Geographic Traveler.
