Monument Valley Tribal Park is a unique place. There is no other place like this on earth. This area is one of the planet's most scenic wonders, and the rock formations in Monument Valley are some of the world's most amazing rock formations, pinnacles, mesas, spires, and cliffs. It is an area of unbelievable beauty.
Hollywood has taken advantage of this area, and Monument Valley has been the backdrop for many movies and TV commercials. One of the Tribal Park's amazing spires is The Totem Pole, perhaps the world's tallest and skinniest spire. The Navajo Tribe has strictly stuck to their rule of 'no rock climbing' in the park, but with Hollywood money, we have seen Clint Eastwood and George Kennedy "climb" the Totem Pole, McGyver land a handglider on the Totem Pole's summit, and Xerox put a desk with a secretary on top of the Pole's summit as well.
Monument Valley is an icon of the West. Its spectacular rock formations are beautiful from far away and up close. It is like a Holy Land for many, and a place of worship for others. Mother Earth is truly a land of wonder.
