Monument Valley

We arrived in Monument Valley this afternoon after a two and a half day drive from Shawnee, OK. Monument Valley looks the same as it did in the old Westerns that were made here.

John Wayne was one well known star who made several movies here, including "Stagecoach", "The Searchers", and "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon". One of these movies is shown at the Goulding's Lodge every night at 8 PM. Admission is free. We are staying in our motorhome at Goulding's RV Park just down the road.
