Experiencing the sun coming up in is like experiencing all the hard values of the old American west. Realising that they had to go through that hostile territory in the worst conditions, makes you appreciate the value they had. This was a favorite of John Ford Point; Monument Valley was the scene of several of his films.
Coming from Moab to Monument Valley, you will find this place. It is closer to Monument valley, and is reach before getting to Mexican hat. The Hole in the rock, the hole in the stone. Do not worry that it is an unusual sign, I would say only one in the world, do you notice the phenomenon. Stop off on the way accompanied by a pair of crows that distrust daring feature of this animal, should be unique in its kind. Good save and photos on these endless roads.
