Monument Valley is an unspoiled, spectacular and colorful area of our country. It is the equivalent of national park in my opinion and run by the Navajo Tribe so any national park passes do not work here. They have an area where the public can view some of the park on a very rough gravel road. Other areas of the... More

Since I saw "The Searchers" on a late night movie in the 3-channel early 1960s, I have wanted to visit Monument Valley. It is even more stunning in person than on screen (yes, it was black and white all those years ago, but now I have a DVD). The wide expanse of sand, suddenly interrupted by those iconic monoliths is... More

Took a Jeep tour around Monument Valley which was just amazing. These Sandstone structures have to be seen to be believed, like some ancient monuments from another world, a photographers paradise. Visited the John Ford area which was very busy with visitors. Our Navajo guide Harrison was very knowledgeable & entertained us throughout the drive, especially with his driving skills,... More

The first half a mile or so of very rough track (in no sense could it ever be described as a road) down into the valley floor is, indeed, a test of nerves and driving skill - we were in a 2WD rental saloon car. So long as you go carefully and slowly, and use the whole width of track... More

Definitely take the time to visit the tribal park & visitor's center. A nice area dedicated to the Code Talkers of WWII.

Monument Valley is kind of isolated and takes a fair amount of driving time to reach. I was hesitant about going as I wasn`t sure if it would be worth it. It ended up being one of best places I`ve ever been! The views are just awe-inspiring. Pictures turn out beautiful as well... the best ones of my trip. I... More

This was the most crowded place we visited in this region. It was even difficult to photograph a good spot without at least 10-20 persons on it, probably because it is really impressive and very accessible to buses.

The park brought back memories of watching cowboy films when we were young. The views are amazing even from a distance.
