A couple of years ago a friend of mine asked me to house/dog sit for her on the island of Yell in Shetland.

It was an incredibly beautiful place and absolutely breathtaking.

HERE are the photos I took. :D

You have all certainly been to a lot of beautiful places all over the World. I have never been abroad, I can't get on a plane.

HERE are a few photos taken on the Navajo Reservation - mostly Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly. :D

:lol: Hehe - no that's a Navajo. The photo is taken at a place called Ford's Point after the film maker John Ford who made a lot of his Westerns in Monument Valley. One of the hotels pays a Navajo to sit on the horse and all the tourists at the hotel pay a Dollar to have their photo taken with him. I had a telephoot lens, so it didn't cost me anything. :wink:

I love the southwest U.S. Have you ever been to Chaco Canyon, Tony? I was in Santa Fe a few times, but I never made it to the western part of the state. That would have been too long of a drive, especially with driving back home to northern Colorado. :)

I'd not care about the Indian, I'd have wanted to sit on his horse, though seeing as how close to the edge they were, on second thoughts, perhaps not. :lol:

Aside from the images that pop into my mind of a very loud populace (the island is really called Yell?), I agree.
