The famous geology of Monument Valley glows at sunrise

"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls." - from "John Muir of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir"
