Though hobbled by injuries received in the Painted Desert, I was still able to enjoy a photo tour of Monument Valley — a ‘holy place’ that I dreamed of visiting since before I knew exactly where it was. This view of John Ford’s Point was captured as a storm approached the valley.
During a recent snow storm, it was my good fortune to watch again “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon”. There’s a part of the movie where the cavalry troops are making their way back towards the fort in the midst of a wild storm. The filming of it was awesome, especially given the older technology of this old movie. I was transported back to the day that I actually saw this valley with my own eyes.
