After three days I left and took the short trip South to Monument Valley and landed at the "The View" campground...inside the Park with a Birds Eye view of the Mittens...again no hook-ups, but my Solar worked flawlessly....I had no intention of taking the self guided tour...Have taken that tour numerous times....again I just wanted to relax and take a few photo's of the Mittens at sunset and next morning sunrise...and I could do that from the rear window of the Casita....no chasing the "Magic Light...Mother Nature was putting it in my lap as I sit outside listening to the silent sounds of history...or maybe even John Wayne saying, "Pilgrims...get your wagons in a circle"

A Father and his teenage Son and Daughter parked next to me with a Rental Class-C...they where from Germany...came over on vacation...especially to see the National Parks....well, since I was born in "Deutschland" , we had a rather nice conversation..his son is an avid photographer...and has the gear to prove it...It was a great encounter and this morning we where all out early to get some shots of the sun touching the Mittens....

I will stay here until Monday( 28 Sept) or...plus, I have decided instead of returning to Colorado for Aspen "turning"..been there...done that, I would venture to Bryce and Zion....never been there....that's my "Jello" hard core plan..till then I'm going to relax, sight-see, and try and get some pics of the "Blood Moon" on Sunday...I can't find any Guides that will do a night shoot in the Slots with trying to get the Blood Moon...Mmmm, maybe they want that for themselves..Oh well...I'll try and use Lake Powell as the "Backdrop"...Till then Happy Trails, and thanks for stopping by...Horst sends
PS...and to my Bride, a HUG Thanks for all Her Understanding and Support....The "Lucky One"
