The Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, located on the Arizona-Utah border, is a red-sand desert region home to some of the most iconic images of the American West. The Valley is considered the sacred heart of the Navajo Nation and is surrounded by towering sandstone rock formations, mesas, and flat-top buttes that have been sculpted over time. It is undoubtedly one of the world’s natural wonders.

Some landmarks in the park are The Mittens and Merrick Butte, Elephant Butte, Three Sisters, John Ford’s Point, and Camel Butte. The mittens (east and west) are the most famous monuments in the valley and have been featured in many stunning landscape images, movies, and TV shows. Although the mittens are worth the visit, there is so much more to see in this sacred Navajo valley.

Camel Butte, one of Monument Valley’s signature landmarks, is a must-visit. It’s only when you stand close to the Butte that you can truly appreciate its size and majesty. The view of the Butte against the dramatic morning sky is awe-inspiring.
