Get to know Monument Valley with Viator
If Monument Valley feels like something out of a movie, that’s because it is. You’ll likely recognize the “Mittens”—twin sandstone buttes along the valley’s 17-mile (27 kilometers) loop-road—as they’ve starred in countless commercials, magazine shoots, and films (especially westerns). Part of the Navajo Nation straddling the Arizona-Utah border, the valley is an expanse of red-sand desert punctuated by rock spindles jutting up to 1,000 feet (400 meters) into the sky.
