Travel Information

There is a dirt road exit from the main road (map) but i wouldn`t call it even dirt road, its not easy to drive, a lot of deep bumps.
Don`t come too late, i was a little bit in a hurry as i under estimated the travel time , even from the main road it took you some time . no parking there, but you can stop anywhere. Don`t get to close to the rock itsself its sacred by the navajos.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people

I've been there twice but on the other side near the corral. This shot is MUCH more interesting.

Holy moly, this is definitely an amazing place and therefore a highlight without a question. Especially the composition from this perspective looks breathtaking Michael!

Thanks a lot Manuel, I really highly recommend this spot. No other people in the whole area while I was there. This is also a spot you haven't seen a million times on the Internet.

Yeah, very true... when I just saw this image there was no way for me, that this one isn't included in our newsletter on Wednesday. Really stunning spot + perfect photographic execution buddy!
