Photographer's Note

Movie director John Ford's favorite site for filming westerns was Monument Valley. In his "My Darling Clementine" about the Earp brothers was filmed here, even though the real Tombstone, Arizona is hundreds of miles away. One of my Ford favorite's "Stagecoach" starring John Wayne also used it for a backdrop with the stagecoach rolling by.

Today, Monument Valley is protected and managed by the Navajo Nation. The campground is one of the great western spots, highly recommended.
