Photographer's Note

Ok, continuing on with our Old West tour. This shot of Mexican Hat Rock was captured on the way down Hwy. 163 towards Monument Valley. We had gone to Four Corners that morning, which is a fairly barren place. The only thing notable about it was there was a Navajo soldier killed in the Gulf War that day, so all the flags were at half staff. I have a few shots, though - I have to look through them. We kind of did a big loop around here, but neglected to take the turn to the Canyonlands or Bryce. Next time, though. I may take a trip out here next winter to stay at the new hotel in Monument Valley.

If you look closely you can see a person standing under the balancing stone, or Mexican Hat. This was a very hot day, I was surprised to see anyone out and about in the desert besides myself.

This was shot with my trusty Olympus 8080WZ, shortly after I got it. It's still a great camera and ready for use at any time.

Have a great Tuesday!
