In such a desolate area, I didn't think we'd be seeing contrails (condensation trails) from airplanes in Monument Valley. For the conspiracy buffs, you might refer to these as chemtrails (chemical trails), but that's another story. My photo, my site, so they are contrails. :-)
About fifty percent of you will like the trail over East Mitten and Merrick Butte. The rest will hate it. I go back and forth on this as well. On some days, it seems to add interest to the photo and other days, not so much so. I guess it's a mood thing. What say you?
