Monument Valley is in the huge Navajo Nation which overlaps the
border between Utah and Arizona. The Navajo Tribal Park occupies only
a part of Monument Valley itself. There are guided tours of the Tribal Park
from the Park Visitor's Center; and also guided tours of the area called Mystery
Valley from Goulding's Trading Post. There are also tours offered by private
tour guides in the town of Kayenta. There is a fee for all of the guided tours.
There is also a free self-guided tour from the Visitor's Center which the visitor
can take in his own vehicle. There are many interesting formations to be seen
including "The Mittens" buttes, "Merrick Butte", "John Ford Point", and the
famous "Totem Pole"; but no natural arches.
The gravel/dirt road is 2wd, but is pretty rough in places.
