I took this shot just after the sun set and lit up the sky with a beautiful warm glow. There is only one main road through Monument Valley, US 163, which links Kayenta, AZ with US 191 in Utah. The stretch approaching the AZ-UT border from the north gives the most famous image of the valley, and possibly of the whole Southwest - a long straight empty road leads across flat desert towards the 1,000 foot high stark red cliffs on the horizon. The highway cuts through the mesas at Monument Pass. Billy was watching out for cars while I setup in the middle of the road to get this shot. Even though this was my first time here, it felt very familiar. I later found out that a lot of westerns were shot here so I must have seen it on TV.
