Rust colored rocks, desert sands, and barren landscape make Monument Valley famous for its American West terrain. Located on the border of Utah and Arizona, this tribal park is owned by the Navajo Nation.

There is a 17 mile trail which allows you to drive around the valley at your own pace and see the more popular scenic sites. View The Mittens, rock formations shaped like the cozy hand warmers; as well as Yei-Bi-Chei, a rock that looks like a Navajo holy man. Also take advantage of the many trading posts that sell Native American arts and crafts.
