Maycation Day 9
A drive through Monument Valley before hitting the road again. It’s not a long distance drive but takes a while because nobody wants to rush a drive like this.
This is more or less what you see on all sides for the 2 hour drive through Monument Valley.
It’s overwhelming. It’s easy to stop and take photos and be okay with not simply relaxing and taking in the beauty because the beauty is constant and the sites seem to go on forever. Likewise, there is no need to take photos of everything. So you can take tons of photos and soak in the views without bothering to document them and you will still have more beauty than you can either absorb or document.
On The Road Again
The drive from Monument Valley to The Grand Canyon isn’t bad but the weather was, at times.
Among the random weather events between Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon: patches of warm sunshine and blue skies mixed with snow storms rolling across the desert. Dust clouds that flew up into the rain clouds, giving them a red glow. Rain. Sleet. 30-ish degrees. 60-ish degrees. Dead still air. Strong gusts of wind. The full range of normal random weather patterns, I guess.
