|Forest Gump. Journey's end|
Last stop on our USA road trip and what a way to end this wonderful journey but at Monument Valley staying in "The View Hotel" giving us a ringside seat of this natural spectacle and an opportunity to spend a night soaking up the silence looking up at a crystal clear night sky from our balcony. This modern hotel is in the Navajo reservation area and is primarily staffed by local people. The hotel is modern and tastefully furnished with an indigenous influence in it's décor in the public areas and bedrooms. It is evident that the management and staff take pride in this hotel. The public areas are immaculate and the bedrooms are modern, clean and well equipped. The restaurant serves simple fare and some of the dishes on the menu are inspired by Navajo traditional food. Prices are very reasonable and this restaurant doesn't pretend to be anything else but one serving honest to goodness food all serviced by enthusiastic and friendly staff.
