Monumental

Ok, we're going to leave Ghost Ranch for a while because there's so much more to see. Like for instance, this shot taken at sunset time, at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park on the border of AZ and Utah. Just like out of the wild western movies. It's real, and amazing to see.

Beautiful deep red and breathtaking scenery. This country just amazes me, so many beautiful places to see and I haven't seen not even 10% of it :)

I think I've seen this before. Perhaps in an old John Ford movie? Nice capture of an iconic subject.

Where's John Wayne or John Ford? They have to be in there somewhere! :)

Superb image Glenn, perfect timing for the perfect light.

Gorgeous colours on this one; I'm guessing from the light and colours that this was either early or late in the day? Brings back happy memories my trip around there (Arches NP at sunrise was excellent)

@Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, USA: No Susan, that was The Devil's Tower, which is located in NE Wyoming. But good guess, and thanks for the compliments.
