Monument Valley is the most famous example of the classic American West landscape, located on the border of Arizona and Utah. Crimson mesas and surreal sandstone towers rise hundreds of feet into the air, some as tall as 1,000 feet. Valley’s rock formations are noteworthy mainly because they resemble animals or other familiar images (e.g., Bear, Rabbit, Stagecoach). Monument Valley is a Navajo Nation Tribal park and charges a fee of $5 per person for access to the loop road through the valley. The area is entirely within the Navajo Indian Reservation near the small Indian town of Goulding, established in 1923 as a trading post.
