Here are the details you'll need to plan your photo tour of two of my favorite southwest locations, Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly. After many visits to this expansive desert of massive red rock buttes, I have never photographed the same scene twice. Every season brings a new sky and a different light. The snow storms of winter, the rain storms of summer, the blooming of spring, and the arrival of a few subtle color changes of autumn-all are illuminated by constantly changing light.
This newsletter lists the best places to be at sunrise and sunset plus a chart to determine the exact times. Maps show which roads and trails are open to the public and which can be explored only when accompanied by an authorized Navajo guide. Learn how to find a Navajo guide and how best to use their services to photograph the Yei Bi Chei at sunrise and the best time to photograph the Teardrop Window. Also learn how to get a Navajo guide to photograph Canyon de Chelly and Canyon del Muerto without riding in a truck filled with tourists. The Anasazi ruins, the petroglyphs, and the pink sand dunes can be discovered with information in this newsletter plus tips on driving the sandy canyon bottoms without getting stuck.
