Elephant Butte From North Window

Elephant Butte From North Window

In my final image this week, we are again at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. This time, it is just after daybreak with the sun rising in the east, with the sun just reaching the valley floor. The rock formations in the distance are lit by the morning rays but Elephant Butte is blocked by Cly Butte at this point and only the top is being lit by the warm dawn light. This image was taken after a short hike off of the publicly accessible Loop Road. I would highly recommend taking a tour with a licensed Navajo Guide. They can take you to places that you can’t get to on your own.

In the best light…
