Part 9 - Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a Navajo Tribal Park, located in Arizona just south of the Utah border. It's a small part of a huge Navajo reservation that occupies vast territory in the "Four Corners" states: Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and especially Arizona. It has a large, modern visitor center with a good restaurant. From there, the self-drive tour is a long loop of bumpy (but flat) dirt road.
