Monument Valley is a place of primordial red spires, mesas and vast sandscapes
Monument Valley’s spectacular red spires and buttes and vast stark tapestry of rock, sand and sky inspire awe. Monument valley is located on Navajo Indian lands in the the remote border country of Utah and Arizona.
We invire you to arrange a guided journey or Independent Traveler Journey that begins with a cultural introduction in the Sedona area.
The spires and buttes of Monument Valley seem to float on a sea of red sand, imparting a sense of intriguing beauty of form and color that shifts with changes in light in the clear air. Far away from the cities, you enter into another world of ancient rock shaped by powerful forces of nature as we travel into the back country with a Navajo guide and enjoy a Navajo taco at a family site, hear the stories and songs. We experience a place and a culture for whom this land is alive and imbued with meaning.
This is a video I made about a winter Monument Valley journey. Quieter in winter, it lends itself to a more contemplative experience then.
Guided journeys arranged for groups or can consult with you in creating your independent journey, pre-trip seminar in Sedona and arrangement to meet with Native guides.
Monument Valley is about a 13-14 hour round trip day to and from Sedona
