Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

We headed out to find this spot and discovered that the fee to get into the park is $20 per car. You must decide if it's worth $20! We decided against it.

Thelma and Louise cliff.

Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

This canyon is called the "Grand Canyon stunt double," since they cannot film at the actual Grand Canyon. The Moab/Monument Valley Museum in Moab has all the behind-the-scenes photos of this area. Many films were filmed here and in the surrounding areas.

Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

I was there jeeping with a friend of mine apparently when the movie was being filmed. We drove our jeep up to the area and found a ramp in place that would have been used in the film. We didn't know what it was for until a year later when the movie came out.

Cliff Where Thelma and Louise Exited

There is nothing there to say this is where Thelma and Louise jumped, but I googled it and a picture exactly like mine came up. This is a beautiful park and overlook. Worth the half hour drive and the $10 to get in.
