Looking towards Monument Valley from the Utah direction. A real ‘Stop the car’ moment. I recognised the scene. This view was used as an album cover in the 80’s for The Best Of Eagles UK release. Happy memories.

    Fantastic image Sue. A holy WOW image!!! Love it. I came back from that area with a gazillion images (my portfolio Vegas Versus the Canyon), but I must have missed this highway along my trip. Great image. And instant favorite.

  • Thanks very much Hany. You’re right, there are so many great sights in the area, it’s taken us a few weeks to edit them. I’ll keep an eye out for your photos going on…

    This is stunning, one day I want to drive down a road like this.

  • Thanks very much Nigel. It was a real honour to be in such a stunning spot, I could have just stood there for ages.

    Great shot Sue and good luck in the “Stop the car” challenge. I was only last night watching Billy Connelly taking in the awesome views of Monument Valley in his TV doco on Route 66.

  • Thanks very much Tony, what a coincidence. We watched that series a few months ago. I hope you enjoyed it. It really is a great place to visit. I’ll say thank you for the vote too…
