New Mexico to Arizona

Approach to Monument Valley. I painted a bit off the road to avoid all the French and German tourists driving RV's like-- well I dont know what.

Goosenecks is maybe a better place to stay as they have removed the campground from Monument Valley and put up an awful hotel.
One wonders what anyone thinks?

Always wanted to paint this. I was on a river trip 10 years ago and we arrived to this monument from our entry in Bluff Utah. A great rip which I painted the river and petroglyphs.

This classic view is now the dump. It used to be the best campground in America. Now they have built a Mall like hotel and taken out the facilities for the camping? Who knows?
