After one first visit to Monument Valley, where we could enjoy the beautiful sunset in these stunning landscapes, our plan was to return the next day to an excursion inside this park of the Navajo Nation.
Thus, after having breakfast in style at the restaurant Holiday Inn, where we were staying, and after loading the car with suitcases, we headed back to the Monument Valley.
As we approached this place for the second time, we were stopping to take photos in the distance, and then closer.
The feeling he left us on our visit yesterday was so fantastic, that on this second day we had a special illusion to return; We felt like a very special magnet.

After parking the car, we returned to admire and photograph the view of the tables natural. Like the day before, in our conversation with the Navajo Indians (without looking into my eyes) we did not reach any agreement on a possible guided tour to take today. The reason: they asked us for a lot of money.
Hiking in Monument Valley
Therefore, we decided to do some trekking and follow a trail called for about four hours Wildcat trail.
Blessed was the time we thought the tour was expensive of payment that the local guides proposed to us !!
Landscape of the Monument Valley in Arizona
Our tour was really beautiful, very difficult to explain with words. All the stars aligned us in favor. Namely: sunny day, warmth, very blue sky, reddish earth, enveloping atmosphere, free smells, transparent and clear atmosphere, living flora, ...
In short, a great walk along the paths around the monoliths or stone gods. We were able to admire, with dozens of photos too, those tables natural from very close and realize, even more, of its immensity, and the peace and harmony that they transmit.

At the end of the four-hour tour, we return again to lookout point Visitors Center, where we returned to enjoy the impressive Panoramic landscapes of the Monument Valley.
We could also see the traditional mud houses of the Navajos Indians, and we could see how they were built. Already back to the car, we could see a couple of Navajos beating their typical dances. Interesting.
