Gettin' Our Kicks: Chapter 15 – Day Nine Grand Canyon to Monument Valley

June 13, 2015

The ride to Monument Valley isn’t too far, but it was a hot one. We stopped one last time in The Grand Canyon for a quick bite and then on to AZ 64 to AZ 160.

Along the way we stopped at a viewpoint and ran into a couple taking their own wedding pictures.

The landscape changes between the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.

The clouds pick up a Pinkish hue from the color of the desert

We arrived at The View Hotel around 3:30 and got checked into a room with a beautiful view of the valley.

Happy they had a luggage cart

We did get a surprise when we went to find a beer. It seems The View Hotel is located on an Alcohol Free Navajo Reservation. We had an O’Doul’s. I did not like it.

Sunset was spectacular.
