Monument Valley

This natural reserve, that falls within the jurisdiction of the Navajo Nation’s, is known by them as Tse’Bii’Ndzisgaii and it’s said to be one of the most photographed spots on Earth.

The park is situated in Northern Arizona and Southern Utah, and lies within the Navajo Station reservation.

You might feel so tiny surrounded by those majestic, million-aged towers of sandstone rock.

It’s complicated to imagine how all of that has been formed. It’s been the process of millions of years of layers upon layers of sediments settled in the basin combined with the natural forces of the water and wind that slowly removed the softer materials allowing us to see what it’s exposed today.

The beauty and uniqueness of it rely on its constantly changing nature.

It has also achieved some Hollywood fame as the backdrop of many movies and television shows, beginning with several John Wayne films including Stagecoach in 1939.
