Monument Valley is a wonder of wonders in my eyes and one of the most inspirational places in the Southwest. During the monsoon, storms develop out of nowhere and are often an awesome display of natures fury with much needed torrential rains over the thirsty desert floor and often with a vivid display of lightning. This cloudburst exploded right before my eyes, making the Valley the most intimidating I have ever seen it.

Half of India's coal is mined in the Jaintia Hills. The introduction of 'rathole mining' has scarred the landscape and clogged the roads in land once touted as 'the Scotland of the East.' The absence of regulation and the lack of strict enforcement of labor laws has encouraged local entrepreneurs to exploit the cheapest sources of labor: children. (Image 1 of 6)
