A visit to Monument Valley/Goulding’s Trading Post Museum

Gouldings Trading Post

One of the stops we made on our recent road trip was Goulding’s Trading Post Museum near Monument Valley. We are big Old Time Western Movie fans so being able to walk in “John Wayne’s Cabin” from “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” and check out lots of old movie memorabilia was something we really looked forward to.

There are multiple “parts” to the museum. There are wagons and stagecoach outside, The Trading Post, The Movie Room, Living Quarters of the Goulding’s and a beautiful display of area art by Josef Muench.

It only takes about an hour to enjoy the museum. There is no admission charge, this stop is free. If you are doing a sunset tram tour, camping or visiting the local area you can just stop in and check the place out.

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
