Red Dunes, Monument Valley   Leave a comment

One of the more under appreciated aspects of Monument Valley are the red sandstone dunes.  The winds that sculpted the valley produce intricate patterns, often assisted by random paths left behind by birds, snakes and lizards.  The red color contrasts beautifully with the bright blue skies and green vegetation.  It’s easy to become mesmerized by the iconic rock formations that draw visitors from all over the world.  But if you go, don’t forget to look at the more subtle beauty beneath your feet.
