Monument Valley on the Utah-Arizona border - What a beautiful place!!! It reminds me of cowboy movies and the old west.
Monument Valley is a part of the Colorado Plateau located within the territory of the Navajo Nation reservation. The most interesting part of the valley is called the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, or TseBiiNdzisgaii in Navajo language. It is equivalent to a national park. The vast size of the valley, vivid red colours and, most importantly, isolated sandstone towers of various heights and sizes comprise an overwhelming landscape of the Monument Valley truly unique scenery that is hard to forget.
The Mitten buttes - here the East Mitten or Right Mitten butte - are named for their shape, which resembles mittens. The two Mittens form a triangle with Merrick's Butte (right).
