Monument Valley Overview

Monument Valley is located near the Four Corners region of the US, on the Arizona/Utah border along US 163. It resides completely in the Navajo Indian Reservation. It is famous as a movie and television location. It has been featured in countless westerns, and used to portray the old west in other movies (Mission Impossible, Thelma & Louise, Air Wolf, MacGyver) and televison shows.

Just across the border on the Utah side is a small area called Gouldings. It was established as a trading post in 1923 and now has a lodge, restaurant, general store, gas station, campground and museum. There are many locals who give guided Jeep tours of the area, although you can drive the very rough, 17 mile road, for the price of an access pass to the Tribal Park.

There are few full time residents, and other than Gouldings, there are very little amenties nearby. The cities of Mexican Hat, UT and Kayenta, AZ are your nearest alternatives for gas, hotel and food.

Located just north-east of Monument Valley, this extremely small community of less than a hundred has made a name for itself due to a stone feature that looks like a sombrero or hat.
