      Hey Stumpy, that's a sharp looking picture. Seems we like the same area. Here's my desktop picture. :teeth_smile:



      A beautiful place. I hope to visit there one day.

      Apparently it's the exact same picture, only your's is from a greater distance. But in looking at the two, it's obvious the two mesas on the left are the same. Mine came from landscapes shown in Windows Photo Gallery - where is your's from, Mark?

      The road in the Picture is the Same One that was used in the Film "Stagecoach" in 1939.

      I knew mesa wasn't right but couldn't think of the right word offhand. BTW, Bill, there's supposed to be an "e" on the end of "butte".

      I can't remember where I got it, Stumpy. I've had it for a while. I'm sure it was off the web somewhere. Here's another picture of basically the same shot (just a little to the right), but from the movie Stagecoach. Compare it to my desktop picture and you can see that not much has changed over the years. Wow.

      I know I often sound way too pedantic but I'm a good speller and when I see misspelled words, furnishing the correct spelling is an automatic reaction. :embaressed_smile:

      This is what I have set as my desktop background. Look familiar to anyone? :wink_smile:

      Yeah, looks familiar to me for two reasons - (1) obviously Monument Valley, and we've all seen enough pictures of it around here to know it well, and (2) it's MY desktop wallpaper as well!!

      Do a Google search for images of Monument Valley - some spectacular photos of the place!

      Monument Valley has to be one of the most desolate, yet majestic, looking places on Earth. There's a timeless quality to it - you just know it has been there forever and will still be there when we're long gone. It's like being in a huge church.

      Talk about desolate, but beautiful!


      Dusk? Dawn? I don't know the geography of the area, so I don't know what direction we are facing. I'm sure somebody here will have the answer! This picture is absolutely surreal.
