My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Saturday’s scene: Moon Over Monument Valley

On a visit to Monument Valley, baby boomers will find plenty of artistic photo opportunities. My chance came when I accompanied Alan on a photography workshop with Jim Altengarten of Exposure36 Photography. The great thing about Jim’s workshops is that he allows spouses to attend for a small fee and he doesn’t mind if they bring a camera along, as long as they don’t ask for instruction. While the real photographers set up their tripods for a photography competition, I stepped out of the way and took this shot.

Have you visited Monument Valley? Post a comment to share your favorite experience. Next time, Alan and I would like to hire a Navajo guide for a back-country adventure in this beautiful corner of the Navajo Nation.

New here? We hope you’ll come again. To keep up with us, subscribe to our posts, sign up for our monthly newsletter or keep up with baby boomer travel news and deals at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook.
