Continuing my tour of natural wonders with that WOW! effect. While thinking about a follow-up,
my eye caught a reblog from blogger awordinyourear where the rock formation commonly called Mexican hat was his entry for this week's wordaweekphotochallenge theme 'hats'. My reaction was 'I wish I had thought of that'! So though I didn't enter it for the 'hats' challenge, I thought it would fit into the natural wonders series.
If you visit Monument Valley – much more on the tourist trail- you should take the twenty mile trip to this little village on the San Juan river. Mexican hat is outside the village but you may have to take accommodation there as Gouldings, the only hotel actually in monument valley, gets booked up very quickly. Remember, as at the grand canyon, everyone wants to see Monument Valley at sunrise and/or sunset.
Interesting 'cowboy' food on steel plates cooked over this enormous fire.
There is so much to see around this area, more to follow.
