Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast and iconic sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft above the valley floor. It is located on the southern border of Utah with northern Arizona, near the Four Corners area.

The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation, and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163. The Navajo name for the valley is Tsé Bii' Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks).

I can't help thinking of John Ford movies every time I see these beautiful formations.

Have a great weekend!

It looks so beautiful. I've always wanted to go to Utah. Hope you had a fantastic weekend.

I guess this is the closest to the Four Fingers rock formation in the movie "Outrageous Fortune". I always thought that was real but found out it was just a matte painting. :( Still just as cool! Thanks for the pic.
