Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park offers a stunning panorama of wind-blown desert plains and majestic rock domes, many of which are sacred to the Navajo Nation. Feast your eyes on the sweeping expanse of Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte. Marvel at the graceful sandstone towers carved out of alternating hard and soft rock layers by the natural forces of wind and water over several millennia. The most dramatic viewing times are dawn and dusk when the slanting rays of the sun set the landscape aflame in shades of red and gold. Head out on guided tours for glimpses of mythical formations such as the Ear of the Wind and Hunts Mesa. Enjoy long summer afternoons with scrumptious Navajo cuisine, and check out stalls of Navajo art and handicrafts whose vibrant hues mirror the vivid colors of this ancient land.
