Made famous by its sandstone buttes, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park straddles the border of northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah. Established in 1956, the park strives to preserve the Navajo way of life and features an otherworldly landscape of rugged sandstone hills and soaring rock spires. The protected park lies within a Navajo reservation near a small town of Goulding, which once served as a trading post. Start your exploration at the visitor center, where you can check for current road conditions, arrange for guided four-wheel drive or horseback tours of the valley, and try authentic Navajo cuisine. As you drive up to the visitor center, keep an eye out for roadside stands selling Navajo arts and crafts.
