Monument Valley Rainbow Colors

Ever since watching Forrest Gump I have wanted to visit this part of America. This is Monument Valley in Navajo land, and it is every bit as amazing as I had hoped. I had intended to cycle through this route, but weather messed up my chances further north. Instead, I opted for a road-trip, which happens to be how most Americans see this part of their country.
