Monument Valley is one of the western US symbols.
It is located on the border between Utah and Arizona in fairly isolated area that is more than 70 km to the nearest town Kayenta.
From the Visitor Center, take the dirt road and a bit 'rough, running through the valley.
The road is passable by any means as long as you do not exceed the 15 miles per hour, ie 24 per hour.
The area is mostly flat, but the plain is dotted with some sort of spiers, buttes and mesas called depending on their shape.
The three monoliths that stand out on the horizon of Monument Valley have now become a symbol not only of imagination typical of the American West but also of the United States itself.
Here, in fact, classic Hollywood westerns were filmed.
Monument Valley is part of the Navajo Nation Reservation, where he still lives a tribe; Here the Indians manage all activities.
By car we are a bit 'more limited exploration, compared to a guided tour with the Indians. It is not allowed to go to certain areas, nor to stray too far from the road for an excursion in the vicinity of the hills, but we can do the whole route of the Valley Drive, which will allow us to forward us among the monoliths and the bizarre rock formations of Valley.
Drive along the Valley we stop at some points of interest.
The tour is interesting and is completed in a couple of hours
The magic of this place is the red soil that rises towards the blue of the sky and
life seems suspended between the one and the other as time never passes.
