Monument Valley on a full Moon day

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

This was my third visit of Monument Valley, AZ, this time though it was on a full Moon day. We arrived around 15h00 which gave ample time to have a late lunch, tour the whole park, wait for the full Moon to rise, and wait for all cars to exit the park.
