We spent part of the morning touring Glen Canyon Dam. On the way out of town we stopped at Upper Antelope Canyon but the wait for a tour was too long so we headed for the days destination Goulding’s Lodge at Monument Valley. On the trip we noticed a sign for Navajo National Monument so we decided to drive over to take a look. We hiked several of the trails at the top of the mesa. At the end of the trail we had a view of the cliff dwellings. Unfortunately they were some distance away but we were able to view them through the camera. Tours are offered to the dwellings but we were too early in the season.


We hiked along the rim and had some spectacular views of the canyon below.

This was the first ranger station in the monument.

Back at the park entrance there were replicas of a hogan and a sweat lodge.

There were a few flowers out along the trails.
