Monument Valley Photos

Arizona, United States
Monument Valley is a Navajo Tribal park that is located at the border of Utah and Arizona, and extends into both states. The Navajo name for the park is Tse' Bii' Ndzisgaii or Valley of the Rocks referring to the enormous buttes that form the landscape. The valley's vivid red color comes from iron oxide, or essentially rust, caused by the oxidation of iron in the exposed siltstone and this contrasts spectacularly with clear blue skies.

This page contains 22 photos of Monument Valley, and you can see many of the sites pictured here by taking a tour on the 17-mile drive. The drive is a dirt road and passes by many of the famous landmarks such as the Mittens, Merrick Butte, Raingod Mesa, Camel Butte, and the North Window.
