  • A long way from most places but it's worth it to see if in the area. This view is much better in the morning as the sun is coming up, it shows all the reds in the rocks.  more »
  • I departed Mexican Hat, UT via the Forrest Gump Highway through Monument Valley to Goulding’s Lodge. A great drive with a view. Had a pull out to take a few pictures.  more »

  • Yes the view is spectacular (as it also is for miles either side of this spot), but the amount of stupidity displayed by people in the middle of a VERY busy road was shocking. We talked to a local Navajo vendor, he said he sees near misses multiple times every day and occasionally a few hits! Watch out for cars if you really must stand in the middle of the road! During our five minutes on the side of the road, I saw at least three groups get honked at as they were going to play chicken with cars in exchange for a picture of themselves in the middle of the road! Overall a beautiful area. Take time to talk to the local vendors, they are a wealth of information and very friendly!
  • So fun to go there and take photos. Please remember if you go some basic etiquette: This isn't just for you; take some quick pic and allow others in. Park uphill of the spot. People don't want your 2018 Honda Accord in their photo. Dodgeball rules; call out 'car' and clear the space for vehicles trying to pass. Enjoy it.
