The Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park located within the Navajo Reservation on the state lines of Arizona and Utah, is one of the most beautiful locations in the Southwest region of the United States. With its many magnificent buttes and towers and its sandy, dusty, hot desert floor, visitors willing to rise up early can be treated to a magnificent sunrise beyond the mountains in the distance alongside the buttes within the valley. Visitors are also able to experience this sacred land and immerse themselves in the traditions of the Navajo Indians.
