We all picture the Arizona Desert in our minds from the pictures we saw in the old westerns and the photos that abound of Monument Valley. Having moved to AZ it took me 25 years before I actually made the trip to see it with my own eyes. It is gorgeous. We drove through this area on our own in... More

Driven by the area many times. This time we decided to stop. Pleasantly surprised by the accessibility of this park. It's totally free and kept up. It's more that just views of the rock formation, as impressive as that is. The park contains monuments in memory of US Indian soldiers, including an impressive one dedicated to the Navajo Code Talkers... More

If you like the native people you will enjoy it and see their side of the history we learn in school. The staff was very nice and helpful. I've loved it!

Incredible rock formations. The Navaho's run the attraction. They have lodging there. You pay to drive around the rock formations on a dirt road. I believe it is a 17 loop. The area has been in many Western movies. Bring your cameras.

If you have never been then go. It is a desolate beauty. There is a bit much in the way of touristiness that has been added over the years, unfortunately. Once you get away from all that, the stillness of the place will take your breath away.

Monument valley appears so familiar as it has been used for so many movies. We choose to drive the loop rather than take the tour and I'm so pleased we did as the tour is pretty expensive and seemed to be quite rushed. The road is pretty rough going and should not be attempted in a low car, we had... More

When we got here we immediately signed up for a tour. Most people were talking the Monument Valley tour, but we decided to tale the Mystery Valley tour instead, since the lady said it was much more culturally oriented and would take us to some pictographs and ruins. The tour, being much less frequented, turned out to be a personalized... More

If you can go and drive the trail it's totally worth it! Right out of a Western!! Road is rugged and fun and the places to pull off and sight see are awesome. When you leave be sure to visit the Alien place!! Super nice lady and really cool pictures to share!!
