Monument Valley

We had a beautiful drive through Monument Valley.

The rock formations are incredible and...

the Navajo Tacos and Fry Bread was the best ever!

It was a great trip!

John Albert Scorup Home in Bluff

Dennis's grandfather built this home for his family
in Bluff, Utah. This is the front of the house.

The house from the rear. It is listed on the
National Registry of historic buildings.

Navajo Rug Weaving

Dennis has become fascinated with Navajo Rugs. We took a trip to see Lindsay and
Ethan's family and on the way enjoyed stopping at several trading posts and
pawn shops to look at Native American handicrafts. This is one of the rug rooms.

I've was admirng their baskets and love this one.
They are made with sumac.

Dennis liked this one very much, but we did not buy it.

This is a Yei rug we bought at Shonto Trading Post. Al Grier is
the trader and he still runs his trading post pretty
much like in the old days. There used to be close to 50 trading posts and
now there are only about 8 that have not turned more commercial
