Photos of the Somewhat Less Phallic Landscape of Monument Valley, Arizona

I am now temporarily settled in the Valley of the Sun. Javelina country baby. The road trip is over. Many people seem to be confused as to why I was sitting in a suit and tie next to someone in a cow costume, in Arches National Park, in winter. This website cannot handle the explanation, but there will be an announcement later this week.

Since living in Phoenix, I have befriended a camel named Clyde, and I have hiked Camelback mountain. Very auspicious. Expect an additional announcement on camel drawing. In my conversations with Clyde, I have been inspired to take this project to the next level.

Me and Clyde. Now, some pretty pictures of Monument Valley in Northern Arizona.

    Nice, non-phallic, shots, Phil! I think the 4th one from the bottom is my favorite….

    Hi. I found your blog from another blog. I have to say that those are some awesomely wicked pictures of the American Southwest!

    That second picture is similar to the one on my desktop! I never actually made it to Monument Valley as I didn’t have time but I now regret that. Having said that I did go to the Colarado National Monument which was equally as amazing.

      Colorado National Monument is stunning as well. Thanks for stopping by Spencer :)

    I clicked through your link from Technosyncratic’s comments as I’m doing a similar road trip soon, and lo! A camel greets me at the top! In case you can’t tell from my blog name, I kind of love the camel =)

    Anyway, I used to live in Mayer, Arizona–between Prescott and Sedona–and love looking at pictures of such a beautiful state! Gorgeous, every one of these!

    I know! I found your site the other day. The ostrich article was great. AZ is indeed beautiful. I’m happy to be hear now when it is 70 degrees and sunny every day. Thanks for the comment :)
