Sunset on the West Mitten
One of the most majestic and photographed places on earth Monument Valley is part of the Colorado Plateau and located on the Utah-Arizona border. It is not officially a National Park since it sits within the Navajo Nation Reservation and can be accessed via a valley floor driving loop that covers 17km of these red sandstone desert.
The West and East Mitten Buttes are two buttes in the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in northeast Navajo County, Arizona. When viewed from the south, the buttes appear to be two gigantic mittens with their thumbs facing inwards towering up into the horizon from the flat landscape majestic in shape and form.
