Monument Valley Sunset

My final post in the Memorial Day celebration includes my depiction of Monument Valley on the Utah-Arizona border. Monument Valley is on the Navajo Nation within the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. This iconic landscape has been depicted in many feature films and photographs. My family and I had the privilege of traveling through there on our southwest odyssey two years ago.
