Monument Valley Hiking and Photography Workshop
Monument Valley: Icons of the Wild West
The Monument Valley Hiking and Photography Workshop tour takes us into some of the most famous and fabulous scenery in the American Southwest.  Monument Valley, home of towering buttes and wild totem pole-like spires, was made famous as the backdrop of John Ford's 1938 hit ​Stagecoach.  It has been a sought-after destination ever since, and our sunset/sunrise photography tour will give you the opportunity to experience Monument Valley's wonder first-hand!
