Monument Valley
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monument_Valley
Our word “Navajo” was originally a Spanish pejorative term meaning “Won’t Go”, used to describe Native Americans who resisted relocation efforts by Spanish settlers. The people call themselves Diné. The map shows the location of the photographer. The view is to the South. Happy Mono Monday!

Petroglyphs attributed to the Fremont Culture on a sandstone outcrop, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. This is the least obstructed view, from the end of the Boardwalk. I’ve labeled the petroglyphs shown previously, and some additional animal forms to their left. 65mm ffeq.

A context shot for the previous post, with a few labels. The tourists on the boardwalk, just passing through, looking at petroglyphs left by the nomadic Fremont Culture.
Lots of geology on display here. Thin layers below the labeled uncomformity, center right, indicate quiescent deposition. The giant trough-cross beds all over, labeled at upper left, indicate deposition in high-energy flow.
Handheld panorama cropped to 16:9.
