Photographer's Note

John Ford Point, named for the famous movie director of "westerns", a lot of them starring the great John Wayne.

The 2 days we had to visit the valley were mostly overcast and, at times, extremely windy. The sun made a guest appearance for just a few minutes at a time on our second day there. There is a new hotel at Monument Valley run by the Navajos that is absolutely spectacular. Every room at the hotel overlooks the classic valley view of the mittens. We deliberately booked our reservation for the night of December 20 in order to see the total lunar eclipse that night but....clouds, and too many of them.
