No sitting on horse without permission. Look for horsemen.



During my recent driving trip with my son, Garrett, one that took us through Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon and Canyonlands we realized that way more than half of the voices we heard were from foreign shores. And my best guess is that this aspiring John Wayne hailed from eastern Europe. I going with Kazakhstan because I like the way it looks in print.




Posing as the Duke on a Navajo pony in John Ford country is an assiduously controlled endeavor as you can plainly see. It’ll cost you five buckaroonies for the privilege. Or for you, my young Tselmeg, that'll be 1,704.984 Tenges.

A great series of photographs, Steve, and the humor and ode to the Duke is quite the photographic find! Nice job.

Nice story and photos Steve. I can just imagine how many foreign "Duke" wannabes have jumped at the chance to sit on that horse. Fun. I bet you had a great adventure with your son.

Thanks you two. It was a special adventure for sure. At $5.00 a pop our Navajo horseman could make some decent cake on a good day.

How come you know more Kazahkstani than Spanish?

Enjoyed the beautiful photos and edgy notes but your response to John Farnsworth made me LOL 😂 ‼️
