Monument Valley

1-5 of 5 images in this category.

One of the most majestic - and most photographed - points on earth, this great valley boasts sandstone masterpieces that tower at heights of 400 to 1,000 feet. The landscape overwhelms, not just by its beauty but also by its size and variety. Fragile pinnacles of rock are surrounded by miles of mesas and buttes, shrubs, trees and windblown sand, all comprising the magnificent colors of the valley. All of this harmoniously combines to make Monument Valley a truly wondrous experience. (Excerpts from the Navajo Nation Monument Valley Tribal Park website)
