I have to share a few more of the low quality pix from our Monument Valley flight, because they’re just so fun to look at! Gotta go back. Meanwhile, here are more shots thru the window. First up is the context as we approached, showing how cool all of the rocks are in the area.

We came in high, wanting to ensure we weren’t disturbing people and to get an overview. Quite a delight to see this formation from above.

To me, it’s a small tribe striking out across the plain with a tall scout out front. Next another overview, lower and closer now as we come in from a slightly different angle. Yes, that’s the propeller in the middle thru the windshield over Rusty’s nose.

Maybe these pix are only disgusting due to the low quality. I find them distasteful when comparing to what they could have been, and to what we saw. But my hope is they give you some clue of how incredible this place is to explore by small plane. For example, in the following shot imagine how differently we’re seeing it than those people in cars at the bottom right.

We saw many more sculpted towers than we snapped, and few of the snaps came out well due to the cheapo camera and windows. Still, here’s one example that’s passable. Doesn’t that look like a sculptor’s portrayal of someone looking back at the fortress on the right?
