LODGING

First night we will shoot most of the night so our car will become our hotel for the night or you can get a room at the "The View" Hotel at Monument Valley! I will most likely get a room at "The View". If you would like to split a room with someone please let me know. The remaining nights will be spent in Page, Arizona. They have many hotels and motels there to choose from like The Best Western  We will also spend an entire night out in Page at nearby rock formations to watch the milky way rise over the horizon at Stud Horse Point. If you like to camp, you can get a campsite on Lake Powell at Lone Rock Campground. Lone Rock campsites can not be reserved but their is plenty of space there to camp for $14.00 a night per car.
