  • Great shot and when you compare them to the original scenes,
    taken from our opening post, looks like nothing has changed!


    Stagecoach.
    Somehow I prefer the pics when I do a black and white conversion.

    Thanks Keith,


    I did try to shoot most of the angles I could remember from Searchers, Fort Apache and Stagecoach; tricky when you're on a fiesty Mustang named Geronimo!

  • This place is definitely one that is on my bucket list to visit. One of my co-workers was there 4 years ago and loved it. We have to try to decide what time of year is best to visit.

  • Hi


    We have just got back from spending a fortnight touring the national parks which included visits to Moab Sedona Grand Canyon and of course Monument Valley. MV is absolutely as I imagined it would be and staying overnight at Gouldings and watching the sun rise over Monument Valley was something I will never forget.
    There is a stone which is called John Waynes Boot for obvious reasons. And I got to get on a horse, (the first time in 45 years) at John Ford point.
    Sitting on our balcony looking up the valley you could visualise where some of the films were shot altogether a fantastic occasion.


    Regards

  • May2-- thank you for the website about Monument Valley, very nice. We drove through on the highway in
    1997, pulled over and stopped saw a little bit of things. Would like to go back sometime.

  • Great picture, Francesco. I bet it was a great time. I hope to get out to Monument Valley myself, one day. Did you stay at Gouldings Lodge?
