We were fortunate to be staying at the lodge that housed this collection. We loved going in, leisurely, to see and read all the memorabilia. So much history, and so much beauty in a really neat exhibit.

Apparently there are newer movies which were shot around MOAB but for me, John Ford directed John Wayne movies of near by Monument Valley bring back wonderful memories. There is even a John Wayne room.
