Monument Valley Arches in the Back Country


We are so glad the we had the opportunity to take a back country tour through Monument Valley. We saw several arches and unique views of amazing rock formations that we would never have known about if we just explored on our own. A bonus was to learn more about the culture from a local member of the Navajo nation.

Social Media Description

Have you explored Monument Valley?

During our 2018 road trip through parts of the southwest US, we spent several days in the Monument Valley area. Seeing the beauty of the earth in person is definitely different than seeing it in movies or other media. In addition to gawking at the scenery from the Visitor Center and on a self-guided driving tour, we spent the extra money for a back country tour.

Our driver and guide, a member of the Navajo nation, was awesome! At times, he was our personal photographer. He also made numerous suggestions about how to get the best picture - things like "lay down on your back and look up" or "make sure to walk this way" and the like. It was great to have someone who really knew the area versus the two of us trying to guess! He also answered tons of questions about living in the area.

What did you enjoy most about seeing Monument Valley?
