Monument Valley, Home of John Wayne….

Well, not really, but he loved Monument Valley and it was where five of his western films were made, starting with Stagecoach in 1939 and with the pictures below you can see why.

Many more movies were filed in Monument Valley…

Anyway, if you want to know more about the movies filmed here…Google it or go to Wikipedia….Back to all about us….

We stayed in the RV park which is really nothing more than gravel pads with picnic tables, no services at your site, but with solar and a generator, who cares with vies like this out your windshield.  There is a KOA and another campground Goulding’s outside the Tribal Park you can stay at that have full hook up sites are are still in an amazing setting, but to see Monument Valley you will need to travel into the tribal park.

Here are some of the pictures jest steps away fro our RV:

sunset…

I woke up at 0530 to take in the sunrise over the Valley….

We drove down into the valley in the Jeep

That nights sunset….

Your camera cannot capture the beauty, we had a great time just taking it slow and watching the view change from early morning, to midday, to evening and at night, watching the stars above.  Jupiter was visible to the naked eye in the sky which was neat to see.  Great valley drive, but after two days we were ready to get back to full hook ups…We are headed to Moab, to a luxury RV resort with a pool and nice concrete sites.  Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park are a stones throw away along with some Jeep trails…stay tuned.

One thought on “Monument Valley, Home of John Wayne….

  1. These photos are incredible. Definitely jealous of your campground, but I think by the time we get there, we’ll be pretty happy to be able to run the AC without having to run the generator all day.
