Dim sim, joy, luck.

We have spent the last 2 days traveling across the northeast of Arizona through Navajo Nation lands. (We think) due to the quality of our SIM cards, we have had zero phone coverage and it’s been pretty perfect as an escape mechanism. This blog brought briefly to you by motel wifi before we disappear back into the red rock canyons and ancient crevices of Canyon de Chelley (pron. ‘Shay’) and Monument Valley (pron. ‘wow’ or ‘oh wow’).

And this little beauty for Trudie (which was genuinely on the corner in Winslow, Arizona)…

And Wendy, we got you this little patch of Navajo sky from Window Rock, AZ.

So after all this souvenir shopping we finally got a thunderstorm free sunset at the madly beautiful Monument Valley. For some it was so droll…

For us it was far from that.

And yesterday saw some carpark art acquisition despite complete lack of room in homeward baggage, but who can resist these mountain sheep? Apparently not me.
Tomorrow brings a Navajo guided trip into the back blocks and rocks of Monument Valley. Joy.

  1. I still say you should add ‘copywriter’ to your list o’talents. Wonderful post. Love that old car and want it badly (if only I had the $ to make it perfect and stop the rust). You’re seeing sights and canyons that are steeped in so much history of The People. sigh.

  2. So … how did you go with customs? I hope they let the owl through, but I reckon they would have confiscated that bear grass for sure! Lovin’ the pics 🙂
