Didn't know if I was going to make it today. We having a series of monster storms up here on the summit, with 8 feet of new snow in the last 3 days.
This morning I woke up at 5 am to the flashing and popping of electrical devices due to a large power surge.
Lost our microwave and the controller for our furnace (we're back using our wood stove as a backup).
I'm doing this post on generator power.

James:

I'm not George, but since it is in my backyard, so to speak, I thought I'd provide a brief reply to your query about Monument Valley.

A trip to Monument Valley could take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Monument Valley is a Navajo Nation Tribal Park and, while there is a 17 mile (unpaved) loop road through the park that provides numerous pull-outs & locations for photography, the remainder of the park is off-limits to tourists except when accompanied by an approved Native American Guide.

This makes sense to me since it is home to many people who live there and work the land. In addition, many locations are sacred and trespassing for any reason would be inappropriate.

The park road is open daily from sunrise to sunset. Times vary with the season, but I do not think the hours would allow you to take advantage of the best light. Cost to drive the loop road was $5.00 last time I was there.

If you want to get off the loop road (highly recommended) there are a large number of guides and tours available ranging from 1 1/2 hrs to half & all day tours, as well as sunrise and sunset tours. There are also several guides who specialize in Photography Tours. My recommendation is to go with one of the specialized photography guides who are familiar with your needs, know when and where to find the best light, etc.

I have promised myself that on my next trip to Monument Valley I am going to do the Hunt's Mesa overnight photography tour.

Hey George,

This pano is a bit overwhelming for me in its size - it is really quite impressive. It did not occur to me to try a pano on the dunes!

Hey George,

Both of these are really spectacular!!! The one of Glacier is really nice - particularly when you open up the larger file. The Cliff Dwelling is also really nice and fits the smaller UBB viewing plane nicely.
