Monument Valley is such an awesome place you must find the time to visit. It is located about 5 hours northeast of Phoenix near Utah. As a matter of fact some of the valley is in Utah. The following three photos reflect how the time of day and the light varies so much. These three shots reflect, afternoon, sunset, and early morning light . The valley is the same but the feel is so different. No snow on this trip last week but they just got over a foot in the mountains yesterday and today, so they might have some on the ground also.
