Sorry Joel,

I was just trying to be funny. I imagined if Monument Valley showed up in

It seems that the Mars photos resemble the Mojave Desert, the setting for
many Westerns.

"....But that was B.C. - before Curiosity, the probe sent to Mars, which
for more than a week now has been beaming photographs of the Red Planet's
landscape back to Earth<>.
The rocky, mountainous terrain has been compared to the Mojave
which has given a very different breed of
NASA<>scoffers - those who
believe man never really set foot on the
moon <> - more ammo for
their skepticism...."
