Forrest Gump Point Monument Valley Road

The stunning view from Forrest Gump Point on the road to Monument Valley

The Most Iconic Road View of the West

I do not know if the movie Forrest Gump put this view into my mind, or maybe it was from a time long before, but certainly for years and years I dreamed of seeing this iconic western road view. I believe it to be the signature view from the road of the American West. A road that vanishes and falls and rises into the mesas of Monument Valley that looks alien, futuristic, and ancient at the same time.
