Goosenecks State Park, UT and Monument Valley, AZ

Gooseneck State Park is located on top of a bluff overlooking the San Juan (I think) River. It winds in such a way from looking down it looks like a gooseneck. There are actually 3 of these goosenecks visable from top of the bluff. We were only there one night since we decided to go on a guided tour of Monument Valley the next day.

The Gooseneck.

Here I am with John Wayne.

This is as picture post card perfect as you can get of Monument Valley.

Monument Valley is on the Navajo Reservation and access is limited unless you go on their guided tours. Monument Valley is famous for the many films and movies which have been made in this area, especially those with John Wayne and many other western movies. There was a museum which had info on the many movies made in this area.
