One of the grandest and most photographed landmarks in the United States, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park id dominated by crimson mesas and surreal sandstone towers
Here eons of wind and rain have carved the mammoth red-sandstone monoliths into memorable formations.
The monoliths, which jut hundreds of feet above the desert floor, stand on the horizon like sentinels, frozen in time and unencumbered by electric wires, telephone poles, or fences—
a scene virtually unchanged for centuries.
This area is also known for dramatic, mesmerizing lighting, with the sun illuminating the towers and casting long shadows on the valley floor.
