Where I stayed
My tour leaves around 9 am, so I went over to the Goulding general store waiting for my tour to leave. Interesting I was the only person from the campsite doing the full day tour, while everyone else is doing half day. My friendly Navajo tour guide David loaded up a whole day of food and drove me over to the Lodge area whole a whole bunch of people board the tour trolley. Our group consists of Americans, British and few Colombian Americans. Today the weather is quite good slightly windy with shade of clouds, very pleasant to be out and about.
For the morning , our guide David took us the the southern part of Monument valley called the Mystic Valley for the tour
We arrived at the valley area where David cooked us Bar-B-Que lunch. I chatted with a group of American travelers and one lady recommended me to visit Slot canyon which is supposedly very beautiful full of colors.
In the afternoon, we left Mystic valley for the bumpy ride down the canyon of Monument valley. We drove around several stone formations like the left and right Mitten, Snoopy rock, 3 sisters, and more mesas. Every turn there is a new view of the stone mesa formations, just simply spectacular. Only problem is the red dust blowing everywhere by the end of the trip we were covered in dust. I quickly jumped into shower before I met up with one of our fellow trip mate for dinner. Tonight I ordered beef stew with Navajo flat bread and free salad bar. Then we saw a movie about History of Monument Valley before I hit the sack.
