Monument Valley Park
This is on the Navajo reservation, on the border between Arizona and Utah. Therefore, the park area is run by the Navajo. It’s not a National Park, so while you can’t use a park pass to get in, the imposing sandstone structures will be worth your visit. These towers, formed over 50 million years of erosion, range between 400 and 1,000ft tall.
Things To See And Do:
- Check out the Museum, Viewing area, Restaurant, and Gift Shop. There are exhibits with lots to read about the Navajo code talkers from WWII, displays of traditional clothing and jewelry, and history of the area.
- Go for a tour on the 17-mile Scenic Drive.
- Hike the Wildcat trail or take the horseback riding trail.
- Take a Navajo Guided Tour
- Go check out Goulding’s Lodge if you are a John Wayne and old western movies fanatic.
