After the two big National Parks we headed to the famous Monument Valley. And we couldn’t be more disappointed. The whole area is on Navajo Country and you have to pay 5$ for a day. There are no signs from outside what you will see. These Towers for what it is famous you see from outside of the park. A dirtroad in pretty bad shape is doing a 17mile loop and you see nothing special. Maybe I expected too much.
In the afternoon we drove up to Gooseneck State Park. It is just a parking lot, but with an amazing view over the river below and three bends in a row. It is also a perfect place to camp. And it is free.
