“Possa il vostro cammino essere tortuoso, ventoso, solitario, pericoloso e portarvi al panorama più spettacolare”
L’immagine iconica per eccellenza della Monument Valley 🏜, lo scatto che abbiamo (o vorremmo) tutti a ricordo del nostro passaggio in questo territorio, quello in cui la Scenic ByWay I-163 corre dritta verso la Monument Valley, un incredibile effetto ottico, la strada in realtà superate le alture curva più volte prima di raggiungere l’incrocio con la Indian Route 42.
In realtà più che un punto esatto si tratta di un’area compresa tra Il Forrest Gump Point – luogo reso celebre da una sequenza del film Forrest Gump – ed il rettilineo che prende il via dalla discesa immediatamente successiva.
In questo tratto ogni sosta è valida – valutate voi in base alla prospettiva che preferite – per fermarsi e scattare, prestate solo attenzione all’arrivo delle auto da entrambi i sensi.

There are always other alternatives to fighting. Most focus on the tangible, physical. I have always felt the most powerful was the intangible, mind. My Cheii here is the embodiment of that notion and it’s very inspiring. As hard as you pump them weights or as hard as you work on your fighting forms, don’t forget to put as much effort in on building your mind as well. #navajo#navajonation#prolific#mind#knowledge#thankyou
New Mexico State Senator John Pinto was a wonderful leader to work with in Santa Fe at the Roundhouse. He was a true statesman with great character and passion for serving his community, state and our nation as a Navajo Code Talker, an educator and a New Mexico State Senator. He made an impact on the Navajo Nation for his tireless service in ensuring that he fought for our people. Thank you so much Senator Pinto for your service to our community, state and nation. You will missed but we will never forget your commitment to the people of the Navajo Nation, New Mexico and our county. God speed Senator Pinto. #krmorrisnm#senatorjohnpinto#senatorpinto#newmexico#thankyouforyourservice#navajocodetalker#codetalker#navajo#díne#navajonation
