Forrest Gump was right. Life IS “like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna to get.” Last week in Monument Valley we were expecting crowds and bald skies. We had clouds every day and there were no crowds. We came across the view that Forrest Gump saw when he decided to end his epic run and go home. Forrest Gump Highway (Hwy 163 Scenic Drive) is just outside of Monument Valley and the iconic view of the valley is visible from the highway. Like almost every one else who drives down that road, we pulled over to take the shot from the middle of the road. What fun. We were lucky because the without the normal summer crowds, we could spend more time in the road.
