Default Flight through Monument Valley

I just got back from a guy's fly fishing trip. We took about 4 hours of in flight video over Shiprock, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyons. Here's our flight through Monument Valley.

We stopped at UT25 for water and snacks. They will waive the $20 landing fee if you either stay at Goulding's Lodge or buy stuff from the convenience store.

Our trip summary:

More to come...

Default we were just there

We were just there a couple of months ago. I would be interested in seeing the footage you got at Zion. It was a remarkable place.

Nice video! At the beginning I thought you were taking off on a road. Must be a pretty long runway there.
