Most every place where one stops to enjoy a view or take a picture in Monument Valley (although it seems to be anywhere on the reservation) you will find someone selling something: jewelry, pottery, whatever. I found myself to be deeply sympathetic to the Navajo who were just trying to make a living in tough circumstances, but also struggled with the intersection of commerce and nature's serene beauty. It's not easy to figure out what's right.
