Monument Valley

Today’s Washington Post Magazine had a travel-related article on Monument Valley in Utah.  The author is a huge fan of John Ford’s classic Western The Searchers and he went to Monument Valley in search of sites from the film.

We had just visited Monument Valley in August, so the article brought back fond memories of our vacation.  Everyone who travels to this special place takes photographs because the landscape is so evocative.  You’ll find a gallery online in the Post website, and I’ve added a few here from the Brown family collection.

More to come…

I am David J. Brown (hence the DJB) and I originally created this personal blog more than ten years ago as a way to capture photos and memories from a family vacation. After the trip was over I simply continued writing. Over the years the blog has changed to have a more definite focus aligned with my interest in places that matter, reading well, roots music, and more. My professional background is as a national nonprofit leader with a four-decade record of growing and strengthening organizations at local, state, and national levels. This work has been driven by my passion for connecting people in thriving, sustainable, and vibrant communities.
