Located on the Navajo Indian Reservation is one of the great scenic wonders of the world, Monument Valley, featured in classic John Ford westerns such as Stagecoach, Fort Apache, and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. A 17-mile loop on a dirt road accesses the most famous viewpoints in this iconic area. The towering sandstone walls and towers are frequently ablaze with golden-red colors in the late afternoon, the best time of day to visit. John Ford’s Point, the Totem Poles, Artists Point and North Window are some of the highlights. The nearby town of Goulding has a museum of Hollywood Westerns.
