|It had been raining all day, and stopped just as we arrived in Moab. There
were waterfalls coming off of all of the mesas in the area--an unusual sight.
|On the way to Monument Valley the next day, we saw this balancing rock, called the Mexican Hat.
|Starting to get a hint of Monument Valley now.
|This is a traditional Navajo hogan that we visited as part of our tour
of Monument Valley.
|A Navajo woman grinding corn.
|This structure was outside of the hogan; it was used during the summer
as an escape from the heat, and also when someone was sick.
|Driving towards Monument Valley now on our tour.
|These are "The Mittens," left and right.
|"The Three Sisters," so named because (from the right angle)
they look like three nuns.
|This guy would ride his horse out on the point so tourists could get pictures.
This point was used in many western movies.
|When someone dies in a hogan, the structure is considered cursed, and
it is abandoned.
|This is called "The Boot."
|Our tour vehicle.
