We were welcomed by Gary and Claire into their home. Our room was very comfortable and had a great view, even a little sun room, and chairs out on the verandah. The view during sunrise and sunset as the light plays in the valley is wonderful and the stars plentiful, but a bit chilly to stargaze. Breakfast was served at 8.00 for all guests, each day different and both very tasty and it was interesting chatting with fellow travellers. Possibly a slight disadvantage is the 10 mile drive to the San Juan Inn where food was dull, but maybe that's the trade-off for a secluded location beside a very small town with only a couple of eating choices.

Then into the bus for a long drive. Some parts had spectacular scenery, other parts not so much, but there was plenty of dozing and chatting going on.
Arrival at Monument Valley revealed the scenery, as buttes, mesas and spires were explained to us. We were told to set up camp, ...
... not so much red as MV. This land is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, so there was no charge. I am not sure if I mentioned it but MV is entirely on Navajo Reservation land so you pay a fee to them to access the park (it was included in our tour price). The nice part about this trip was we controlled the speed and the stops for photos. Another new feature of our camera is an easy panorama setting that Peg has been experimenting ...
... br> The gooseneck label refers to the bends in the San Juan River. You enter the park and drive the short distance to the overlook (of course stopping at the outhouse first). The overlook is on the edge of a black and gray sandstone canyon and looks down 1000 feet to the river below. In front of the overlook are 4 bends to the river. In this section of the river it flows over a distance of 6 miles while advancing only 1.5 miles westward. This is ...
