Believe it or not (those of you who know me) I got up for the sunrise! OK we had headed west and it seemed like a normal time to wake up. This was the first shot I got after I stepped out on the balcony.
The first night we stayed right in Monument Valley Utah/Arizona. Every room in the hotel faced east so you could both see the sunset on the "monuments" and the sunset behind them. At night they projected a John Wayne movie on the wall outside so you could watch from your balcony. The movie was filmed here. This is the sunset shining on the monuments.
As we left Chicago the clouds were very thick and seemed almost impossible to penetrate.
