Monument Valley is one of America’s most iconic landscapes. Driving through the valley is a great deal of fun and is very memorable. The famous Mittens, John Ford’s Point and the Totem Pole are just a few of the photogenic vistas, buttes and spires that dot the terrain. The valley is a little remote on the border of Utah and Arizona, but once you get there, navigating the valley is pretty easy.

Below are some hi-res pictures from my trip to Monument Valley. I write about the valley along with a lot of good advice on seeing it here.
