Title: Monument Valley
Post by: noodles_leone on April 30, 2009, 01:30:49 PM
So, i'm leaving for the US west coast and its big parks tomorow. Since I'll spend two days in Monument Valley, I was wondering where the arch was. I didn't see it the first time I went there... Do any of you know?
I'm sure there was a topic about it but I cannot find it...

Yes, by all means, post some pics. We'd love nothing more than to envy your fortune.  :P

They better be quality pics....

Hey, and while you're there, could you rebuild it? Appreciate it!

Noodles...I just spent 3 days there 12-15th researching and studying the film locations.  I visited the Arch a couple of times to get early morning and then midday pictures.  We may have just missed each other!  Thanks to Cusser for his help in locating it!  It was pretty difficult to locate and the road is in bad shape with nails, horse droppings and glass along the way.  Make sure you have spare tires and "fix a flat"!!

This has been one of the BIG highlights of my life getting to see the Arch.  I had a very strange feeling visiting it....a sense of wonder and creepiness all at the same time.  We stayed with some locals who knew the history of the Arch and had some very interesting things to say about.  We took a couple hundred pictures.  I will post some when I get the sorted. 

Did the drive through the Mittens and saw the three sisters etc...

I saw it today! Very hard to find too and strange feeling too... I'll post pics and probably a little video when i'll be at home (which means something like ten days).
I'll also talk more about it then, since i'm using the computer of the lobby of the Flagstaff Quality Inn right now. Still have to see Grand Canyon and Las Vegas (I already went to both places a few years ago).

Talk to you soon everybody

ps: I also did a horseride in Monument Valley. Second time in my life, and even better than the first time!
