Monumental Road – Utah, USA
Spring is in the air in the US. It’s time to start thinking about summer road trips! The National Parks in the Utah/Arizona area are abundant; however I like to find some of the ones off the beaten path and Monument Valley in Utah is one of those. This Navajo Indian Park was my favorite in my road trip across America. Massive rock formations that seem to come out of nowhere.
It is located on the southern border of Utah with northern Arizona, near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation, and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.
Monument Valley is part of the Grand Circle, which includes popular National Parks such as the Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, Capitol Reef, Natural Bridges Monument, Hovenweep, and Arches National Park. I saw most of these on my US Road Trip in 2008 and they are all worth a stop!
