|What is it?
||Monument Valley is the first Navajo Tribal Park in existence!
|What makes it beautiful?
||The rock formations in Monument Valley are surreal! A deep reddish brown, they have been carved into intricate sculptures over 50 million years and now tower high over the desert floor! Immerse yourself in their shapes and textures, then sit and listen to the wind as it blows through the sacred arches hidden in the backcountry!
|How can I Help the Helpers?
- Pay the entrance fee to help maintain trails, signs, structures, and other visitor services!
- Be a responsible visitor! Remember the old adages: Pack out what you pack in! Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints!
