Last day in Monument Valley and we took a guided tour of Mystery Valley.
We had arrived late to Monument Valley Tribal Park but in time to catch the setting sun illuminating the mesas and give the sandstone some added pop. The week before we arrived, the valley had 16″ of snow. While most of it had melted, there was still some areas with snow on it and it added some interesting contrast to the photos.
First day in the Canyonlands area. Spend the entire day hiking all over buttes and mesas! We scrambled on slickrock and scree and found amazing views and historical finds around every bend.
Stayed in Moab, Utah a few days and was able to explore Arches National Park. Amazing sandstone carved arches and landscape. We also found some petroglyphs on our hike.
