Where Forrest Gump Stopped Running
One of America's most impressive road vistas is the scene one sees while travelling southwest from Mexican Hat, Utah on Highway US 163.  This is the northern route through Utah to Monument Valley and was used as the location in the movie "Forrest Gump" were Forrest (played by Best Actor Oscar winner Tom Hanks) ended his cross-country run.
