Greetings all



We took a detour from our Utah adventure to head into Arizona for a few day to check out some of the amazing natural scenery that state is blessed with. First stop was Monument Valley setting for a thousand westons, car commercials and hollywood blockbusters.

I have always wanted to visit but was slightly worried that it would not match the westerns or be a bit touristy but I was wrong it was amazing. Keeping in with our vow to camp where ever we stayed we found a deserted camp ground on the reservation and setup for the evening. We were the only ones camping that night and it was amazing, there is little electricity on the Navajo reservation so the night sky was truly stunning.



You alway think of Arizona as a hot desert landscape and by day it is, but at night the temperature plummets to -2 and my $15 dollar Walmart sleeping bag really wasn't upto it. In the morning we had to knock the ice off the tent to open the zip. but with those view it is worth it. A truly memorable place.

Sounds cold
Looks amazing though, it definitely looks like a western set. Did you see any tumble weeds?
