Monument Valley in Snow

We just got back from a trip to Moab, which involved visits to Arches, Canyonlands, Goblin Valley State Park, Little Wild Horse Canyon, and a bunch of petroglyphs. It also involved camping in 20 degree weather, but that’s another story. (I have a whole set of photographs of “Frost in the Desert.”)

I haven’t had a chance to go through the pictures yet, but I thought I’d quickly share these ones that I took on our way home through Monument Valley. We luckily avoided the worst of the storm and luckily got to see the lovely after effects of it the morning after. (We spent the night of the storm in a warm hotel room.)


I don’t know how common it is for Monument Valley to be dusted with snow, but it was a first time for me. Didn’t last long either–was already almost melted by the time we drove on through.

  1. Beautiful images! Hoping to get to Arches when they have some snow this winter. It’s about 3 hours away. Wanting to get to Monument Valley too especially after seeing these awesome shots!

    1. Thank you! I always have a hard time taking interesting pictures in Arches, so I can’t wait to see yours. I did get a shot of Delicate Arch, though, finally. Of course there were tons of people around, so it was tricky. Will be posting them all soon. Best part of the trip was Little Wild Horse Canyon–not far from Moab, and if you can go, I’d strongly recommend it. Pics soon!

      1. Are you referring to Dead Horse State Park near Canyonlands? I have been several times and already have quite a few pics of the Moab area in my archives! December 2015 and May & June 2016. (Will have to click on title to see archived posts.)
