Great Wall * of tourists

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 27 July 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Sunset time at Monument Valley, at the Navajo-owned hotel (The View) where we stayed for the evening. Tourists were swarming all over one of the hotel viewing platforms. This particular wall of ladies seemed rather ironic, since their nation of origin was clearly China.

Happy ST, friends. Shot this one from roughly the same spot as Monday's post.

I guess if our people 'flock' the their Great Wall, they want to come to Monument Valley.
You certainly made the best of the shot you were afforded!
