Brook was so helpful that we reciprocated with a good deed. At then end of the tour she had several jobs to do after we walked back to the starting point. One of them was to hand out bottles of water. But we three good deed doers relieved her of that job so she could concentrate on her other tasks.
We spent the next one and a half hours driving through rugged but beautiful desert lands to the famous and even more rugged and beautiful Monument Valley at the border of northeast Arizona and southeast Utah. Several John Wayne movies were filmed there along with others. The two hours we spent there were hot (check out our car thermometer) and included views that are absolutely spectacular, which caused moments of "verklemptness" in more than one of our group of three.
We ended up getting a room at Goulding's Lodge near the entrance to Monument Valley. The view from our balcony is breathtaking. The gigantic formations are fading in the waning sunlight as I put the finishing touches on Day #3. Holy Smokes!
