Located inside the Navajo Nation - one of the largest Native American tribes in the U.S. - Monument Valley is around four hours northeast of Flagstaff, near the Four Corners area.
One of the grandest landmarks in the United States, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is a sprawling, sandy preserve that spans the border between Arizona and Utah, bathing the region in rich red hues. Dominated by crimson mesas and surreal sandstone towers - some as tall as 1,000 feet - the area is also known for dramatic, mesmerizing lighting, with the sun illuminating the towers and casting long shadows on the valley floor.
Many Medicine Men still hold their daily ceremonial rituals here. Many of the plants that grow here are used year round, whether it is for food, herbs, dyes, or many other useful things.
