Photo taken at sunset from the Visitors Center
The best way to see Monument Valley is to hire a Navajo guide to take you on a jeep trip around the reservation! It is quite a trip, many amazing views, and wonderful photo opportunities! If you are nice, you might get a performance: the guide might sing a love song in Navajo in a sunlit cave carved out of the red rock. The particular cave has a “chimney” or “window” at the top letting in a shaft of brilliant sunlight. And, you may get to visit a Navajo camp, showing how they lived many many years ago.
This is the location where many western movies and TV series were shot. In fact, you will recognize some of the scenes! The guide will point out some of the most famous ones to you. Well worth the price!
