Monument Valley with Cumulus Clouds

September 23, 2015


Monument Valley (Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, meaning valley of the rocks) is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line (around 36°59′N 110°6′W), near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163. The valley, featured in many forms of media since the 1930s, has defined what decades of moviegoers think of then they imagine the American West. (Photo/Stephen Masker)
