Hunts Mesa - Monument Valley

Not possible to go there on your own, you have to book a Navajo tour. And if the Navojo guide drives you up you understand why, you will kill your car in this few hour drive to get on top of the Mesa...only the journey up is already an adventure on it self. Camping overnight on top of the Mesa and at (sunset was not that special) sunrise seeing this in front of you...magical, not from this world, a big WOW. Hunt's Mesa is the name, deep in to Monument Valley...go there if you can!

If you remember my previous shot from here, this one is taken 14 min earlier, a great difference in light and colour.

Image is part of the south-west tour.

Enjoy...
