Monument Valley

My research for our upcoming road trip in the Southwest continues. There's so much to see, and I know we won't be able to take it all in, but I definitely want to get up to Utah for a first-hand look at Monument Valley.

It already looks familiar to me because it's been featured in so many films, including Stagecoach, Easy Rider, and Forest Gump. There's even a look out point named after Director John Ford, famed for his many Westerns.

We've booked  The View, right in the Park, and I'm hoping for a clear night's vista like the one captured here.
