Monument Valley, Utah
Where John Ford produced Stagecoach in 1939 starring John Wayne. It is located on Navajo Reservation. During the depression, a couple by last name of Goulding, who loved this territory, decided to send pictures to producer, John Ford who consented to film there. This lead to many more western films and economic growth for the Indian Reservation from the depression onto to today.
Isn't it amazing how one couple can make a positive difference in the world?
By the way, we have a stagecoach in Missouri stationed at our cowboy church, Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church, Clark, MO.
We took a trail ride where the movie Stagecoach was shot, as well as a real stagecoach traveled by our native horse guide's great grandmother taking her to to the Trading Post.
Hope you can see it sometime. It was a monumental vacation.
If you can't make it there, we welcome you to a different landscape here in Mid- Missouri at Victorian Country Inn, B&B, LLC where you will find green grass rather than red rocks. God made such diverse country, didn't him?
Enjoy life with adventure there or here.
