There were just too many people present to get good close up pictures.
All around the large square are buildings where the local residents (mostly Navajo Indians) sell their crafts. We found the majority of the items to be of good quality and reasonably priced.
On to Monument Valley! You can tour the park on your own by following the 17 mile scenic drive or you can book a guided jeep tour that takes you into areas of the park not accessible to the general public. We chose the self guided scenic drive. Beware! The brochure leads you to believe that most vehicles can easily navigate the dirt road. We were in a full size truck and at times I felt just like a ping pong ball bouncing off walls. Also be sure your driver enjoys constantly dodging rocks and ruts! Still we felt the drive was well worth any discomfort. The scenery was magnificent and a little familiar due to all those old westerns Bob loves to watch!

These are just a few of the 130 pictures I took that day. This park has been on Bob's Bucket List and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
