More Monument Valley Area Pictures

It is rainy and overcast in Lincoln City today. Kathi is at the casino and I am home writing.

Today I am going to share more of our pictures from the monument valley area. Some of the more spectacular views are on the way to the park and not in the park itself. Some of my favorite photos are ones with nothing spectacular in them, although the visions themselves are spectacular. I love the colors.

An interesting thing about the colors of the mountains are how much more vivid the color are when they are wet. The colors appear more drab with less red as the rocks dry out. The best time to see the color contrasts is after it rains and the sun comes back out.

All these pictures were taken with my Kodak camera from our car window. Most of the current pictures we take with our cell phones.

A picture I took but am not displaying is of a rock called Mexican Hat on the way to the park. It was hazy in the morning and the pictures I took were dull. I'm sure you can see Mexican Hat on the internet. It is very popular.

I love the sights down the long empty highways. Most of you probably saw a similar view in the Forest Gump movie.
