The Monument Valley Visitor Center offers a classic postcard view of the two Mittens and the Merrick Butte.
In the Visitor Center you can find information about Monument Valley and its inhabitants, the Navajo. There are general service facilities and you can sign up for various tours or go on your own trip through Monument Valley. The price is paid at the Visitor Center. The Valley or Scenic Drive leads from the Visitor Center into Monument Valley. The gravel road passes the most important rock formations and offers enough bulges to stop so that you can take your photos. You are not allowed to leave the road or go hiking in Monument Valley. So please stay on the road, the view to the huge sandstone formations is also overwhelming from here.
