More Arizona Memories

These photos are all from Monument Valley. We took a three hour jeep tour near sunset with a native guide (whom you see in a few photos), and it was marvellous. This was the single best thing we did in Arizona, better than the Grand Canyon in a very real way. The tour guide (Frommers)that we followed suggested doing four main things if one had only one week to spend in Arizona: The Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, and Canyon de Chelly. Due to distance, I had some doubts about the latter two, but I decided to follow the suggestions and was very glad that I did.

About the slideshow: I do know that Flickr and Picassa support slideshows and have used both. But AFAIK Flickr will only generate a show based on a whole set, but I didn't wish to display a whole set or to create another set. For Picassa, I would need to re-upload photos that are already on the web, which seems to be a waste. This site, Slide, allows me to import whatever pictures that I have already posted in Flickr, and it does so fairly easily. I tried several sites, and this one seems to work most efficiently for me. Also note that I've gotten rid of the butterflies in this display. :)
