Southwest 31: Arriving in Navajoland

Approaching Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

A sandstorm dances with a mesa
in the distance, dreaming up
a copper blind between the valley

beyond and the desert ground
we travel. What would John Wayne do?
He’d bless his horse and ride on through

without a single thought of what
uncertainties awaited him,
except they waited for his presence.
