There are classic views of the Monument Valley buttes from the main highway, Highway 163. The best views from the highway in June occur early in the a.m., so after shooting the above locations we can drive to this location and catch some classic views from here. At this point anyone who is too tired can opt out for the last hour or so.
This area is also the location of the famous "Forest Gump Highway" the point (Route 163, milepost 13) where Forest Gump ended his cross country run. In June, in the early morning the vertical Milky Way lines up with the highway creating a wonderful composition.
A night hike to one of the Mittens may be substituted for one of the nights in Monument Valley. This depends on the interest of the group.
Possible plans for the "bonus day", June 10, include Valley of the Gods and adjacent interesting spots near the San Juan River.
