Our guide Harry Nez was great; very informative & easy to talk to. He was also a super skilled & talented photographer & gave my husband many tips.Harry began the trip by showing us a brilliant photo of a horse he had taken the night before. He used a microphone in the jeep which was great as my husband is hard of hearing. The tour encompassed major Monument valley landmarks such as the Ear if the Wind' , stop to see ancient art in the form of petroglyphs carved into the rock face . He would have played his flute for us but it was too windy for good accoustics that day & we were sorry we missed it. There was also a visit to a Hogan where a the lovely Elvina demonstrated weaving techniques & did our daughters hair by wrapping it in wool in the Navajo way. As we drove away from her Hogan , Harry pointed out the tree under which she and her sisters had been born & told us a little about the birthing custom. He also whilst we driving along, stopped to pick up the lid of a water container & returned it to the Hogan - making the point that carrying water into monument valley is an important part of Navajo daily life. We also saw wild horses making their way back from a spring where they had been drinking & a family tendingtheir cattle. Harry also stopped at a couple of places where we could buy reasonably priced Navajo jewelry & art. At the second of these, we paid 5 dollars for my daughter to have her photo taken on a horse at John Ford point. We took some photos but also gave our camera to the horse,'s owner who took an amazing photo for us. All in all it was a super trip and highly enjoyable . Thoroughly recommended. Thanks
