Monument Valley is a little "off the beaten path" to say the least, but it is still a very worthwhile place to visit. Its claim to being "one of the eight wonders of the world" is uncontested in my book. One look over the canyon wall is all it takes.
Monument Valley is located on the border of northeast Arizona and southwest Utah and is part of the Navajo Nation. There are tours to the bottom of the canyon or you may drive your own car. Warning: This drive is not for everyone as the dirt road conditions are dismal at best. Having driven the loop for myself, I would be very happy mearly viewing the canyon from the well appointed and wind protected visitor's center. I mention the wind because after shooting here for the better part of the afternoon, the wind came up and turned the area into nothing but dust with limited visibility. I'm talking five to ten feet! Try to see Monument Valley early in the day.
