Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, USA / Goulding's Lodge
Monument Valley, a red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border, is known for the towering sandstone buttes of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The park, frequently a filming location for Western movies, is accessed by the looping, 17-mile Valley Drive. The famous, steeply sloped Mittens buttes can be viewed from the road or from overlooks such as John Ford’s Point. Goulding's Lodge Hotel details On a sprawling property surrounded by the striking red rock formations of Oljato–Monument Valley, this relaxed lodge with an Old-West vibe is 2 miles from Route 163 and 4 miles from Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. HOLLYWOOD MEETS MONUMENT VALLEY When the Great Depression hit in the 1930s, the Navajo Reservation suffered immensely. Harry heard of a movie production company scouting out locations in the Southwest to use in films. He believed that bringing movie production to Monument Valley would help the local Navajos with much-needed income.
