DAY 6 (RO) – Kayenta to Monument Valley, AZ (150 miles - round trip) - Monument Valley provides perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years for movies, adverts and holiday brochures. Because of this, the area may seem quite familiar, even on a first visit, but it is soon evident that the natural colours really are as bright and deep as those in all the pictures. The valley is not a valley in the conventional sense, but rather a wide flat, sometimes desolate landscape, interrupted by the crumbling formations, known as Mittens, rising hundreds of feet into the air, the last remnants of the sandstone layers that once covered the entire region. Other attractions in the area include; Four Corners monument, the only place in the United States where four states (Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado) come together at one place. The Valley of the Gods, a spectacular sandstone valley featuring stunning geologic formations. This geological masterpiece, though a quarter of the size of its celebrated neighbor, Monument Valley, boasts a royalty of rich colors and fantastic formations. Mexican Hat, a small settlement named after a curious formation nearby consisting of a large flat rock 60 feet in diameter perched precariously on a much smaller base at the top of a small hill and close by are the overlook at Muley Point and the entrenched river meanders at Goosenecks State Park.
