Hunt's Mesa Sunrise

Sunrise on Hunt's Mesa

This image was made in Apri 2012, looking down on Monument Valley AZ from Hunt's Mesa. This morning was very cold and windy, however we had some very dramatic light.  Getting up to Hunt's Mesa is a long and bumpy ride. You must use a Navajo Guide to visit this location. Hunt's Mesa is a good location for sunrises as well as sunsets however, unless you want to leave really early, and drive over dangerous rocks, washes and deep sand, you should plan on camping out as we do overnight. I'll be back there doing a workshop in April. I can't wait!
