Danger! Do you remember that? I wanted to take a picture of us while I held you in my arms. We tried but I lost my balance and… we risked falling off into the ravine behind us. A normal pose sounds better this time.
This valley has such beautiful landscapes!
In 1937 Harry Goulding, owner of Goulding’s Lodge, heard people say that a few Hollywood producers were planning to film a couple of western movies in the South West, at a time in which the splendor of the area was still unknown to most people. Armed with a photo album of the Monument Valley, he left for California and started to knock on their doors.
One year later, John Ford brought a filming crew to Goulding’s remote and desert outpost to film “Stagecoach”. Dozens of movies came out one after the other, and then the myth of the Wild West was born. And today we’re living that myth, so what John Wayne used to say is sacred: “This is where God put the West”.
