Monument Valley - Utah November 19th 2012

The Four Corners is a region of the United States consisting of the southwestern corner of Colorado, northwestern corner of New Mexico, northeastern corner of Arizona and southeastern corner of Utah.  It is the only location in the United States where four states meet. The majority of the Four Corners region is part of semi-autonomous Native Americans, the largest of which is the Navajo Nation, followed by Hopi, Ute and Zuni tribal reserves and nations.

The Mexican Hat
 Monument Valley (Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaiivalley of the rocks) is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterised by a cluster of large sandstone buttes, the largest reaching around 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line, near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation.

The View Hotel in monument valley is where the ancient and the contemporary can be viewed every morning. As  we looked from our room the iconic formations of the world famous Mittens stand there in full view. We had the unobstructed, unspoiled views of the sandstone monuments sculptered by the wind and rain over the centuries. We felt so close, that we could almost reach out and touch the massive monuments in the Navajo landscape.
