Monument Valley is a Navajo Tribal Park that is one of the most iconic and enduring landmarks of the American “Wild West.” Red mesas and sandstone towers rise hundreds of feet into the air – some as tall as 1,000 feet. The dramatic natural and rich red hues dominate the entire region that borders between Arizona and Utah. The play of sunlight and shadow overwhelms the senses as one experiences the magic of this environment. Yet, there is a certain peace and tranquility about the landscape that still portrays our Western heritage. This is very sacred land to the Navajo and their honor and respect for this land deserves acknowledgment.
“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth
are never alone or weary of life.” ~ Rachel Carson
“Monument Valley is the place where
God put the West.” ~ John Wayne
