Monument Valley

We left Bryce Canyon the same way we came inIMG_0002 (2)but staying on highway 89.  This took us through Glen Canyon and over Lake Powell.  We had been on the motorcycle for a couple of hours and it was very hot,  so we stopped at the Dam Visitor Center to take advantage of the Dam air conditioning.

After our nice, long break, we crossed over the lake and drove to highway 98 which will take us to Kayenta, AZ.

Can you see the house in the lower right hand corner?  This gives you some scale as to how big these mountains are.

And yes that’s rain ahead.

But we are getting closer to Monument Valley


and our destination of Goulding’s Lodge.


Each room of the lodge has a view and I spent much of my time just sitting and enjoying the transition and colors of the changing skyline.

It was breathtaking.

About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

    ‘Breathtaking”, indeed! So glad you included that house in the photo. It really does give perspective. This is one trip that you certainly won’t be forgetting in this lifetime.

  4. Bwak, bwak, bwak, bwak! I am too chicken to go over that Glen Canyon Bridge. What if it fell off the side of the mountain?

  7. Amazing! What is the soil like there? I noticed steel fence posts…what holds them in place?! 🙂
    I’ve not been following this travellog because I really did not imagine the beauty… It is gorgeous, though. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you!
