Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park
The gigantic spires and buttes of this natural wonder at the Arizona/Utah border never fail to inspire awe in visitors' hearts. Quite a drive from Flagstaff, but well worth the scenic trip, Monument Valley is deep within the Navajo nation. There, the Navajo people continue raising sheep and producing rugs, silver works and basketry. Examples of their crafts are on display in the gift shop at the visitor center. A traditional restaurant is available at the park.
I took a tour with a Navajo guide, Willie. It was the best tour during my three weeks in the US. The guide was informative and kept us interested in what we were looking at. Monument Valley is a must see! Thank you Blackwater Tours!
Take a half day tour with Sacred Monument Tours and ask for Leroy. You'll tour the back country in a private jeep 4x4 for a few hours, then visit a different area of the park by horseback where you can access incredible views by narrow trails. The other tour operators had pickup trucks outfitted with seats carrying 20+ people and simply calling out the features on a loudspeaker. They look like a lame Disney attraction catering to gangs of tourists. OUR tour was personalized and more meaningful. They go as fast or slow as you want, explain cultural and historical facts in a way that you FEEL the experience, not just take a ride. Also located in front of the Visitors Information Center so easy to access by call in advance for reservations. They stay busy!
