Monument Valley Navajo Park

Monument Valley Navajo Park is one of the most widely recognized regions of the American West, thanks in part to Hollywood. More Western movies have been filmed here than in any other location in the United States.
Vast expanses of flat, red desert punctuated by towering buttes and sandstone formations distinguish Utah's Monument Valley. This amazing valley is home to sandstone masterpieces that range in height from 400 feet to over 1,000 feet viewable by scenic drive tours and hiking trails.
