Today we left the Grand Canyon to drive to Cortez and on the way we stopped in at Monument Valley, which is basically a place with lots of rock formations that you would have seen on many Westerns.
We had a 50% Navajo Guy give us a tour of the valley since it is on a reservation, it was a short tour where he told us the names of all the rock formations like ET and The Thumb. At the end of the tour he treated us to some of his music which h sand through the mike, which was your standard Indian chanting you would have heard on movies, and after he told us his CD was for sale in the gift shop…I passed on this.
So wanted to buy a peace pipe and tomahawk, but those pesky customs people would have stopped me in the future. I ended up buying a stone arrowhead and an Indian book of knowledge to impart their wisdomon the middle east
Back on the bus again and stopped at a point just up the road where they filmed a scene from Forrest Gump. It is from the scene where he is running across the states and then suddenly decided to stop and go home, that’s the bit in the picture.
