Monument Valley

Monument Valley was made famous by Westerns made in the heyday of classic Hollywood. The area is strongly associated with John Wayne, and continues to be used in film today. More recent examples include the Lone Ranger film with Johnny Depp in it. The iconic geology gives it that essence of “Western and Desolate” filmmakers are looking for. Much of Monument Valley is nestled within the Diné (Navajo) Nation. So I grabbed a Navajo guide and got to explore the area, including an area with Anasazi petroglyphs.
