“It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep. “– Old West Proverb
Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park on the border of Arizona and Utah near the Four Corners area is a prominent feature on the Colorado Plateau of the Southwestern United States.
The park, sacred to the native Navajo people is truly spectacular and unique thanks to the dramatic buttes and other rock formations jutting into the sky.
The buttes, along with cowboys and covered wagons are probably the most iconic symbols of the old west. In fact the director John Ford used the area as the setting for many of his classic westerns.
There are two options to view the park-drive your own car or pay a substantial fee for a private or group tour, both of which include a very rough circular road, which runs through the park. This road is the only option for most people, as the tribe doesn’t allow hiking other than a few feet away from the road.
