Monument Valley, Utah

Key information: Monument Valley, Utah

    The following has been received by a Walkopedia friend, who sadly didn't leave his name so we can't thank him!   I chose Monument Valley for the serene silent beauty within nature and magnificent sandstone rock monoliths. I booked with Sacred Monument Tours at an all day hike in the restricted backcountry areas and believe every human being should view this wonderful place as I would suggest. According to your grading criteria I believe all the essentials of beauty, natural interest, human interest, and charisma is consentrated at this location. I chose an all-day because of time restrains of work but am defintely coming back for a longer overnight stay into very remote areas with a Navajo guide from Sacred Monument tours that are knowledgeable of culture and nature. The altitude is 5,000 feet and is a 6 hour drive from Phoenix, Arizona. It was very economical for myself, my wife and our lovely dog. We are planning on British Columbia this summer, happy hikes and enjoy life.   Walkopedia ask:   - any views on "human intrest' for rating purposes?   - anyone got some good photos?
