The three imposing and famous rock formations are located in Monument Valley.
If you look at West Mitten Butte and East Mitten Butte from the south, the two rocks look like huge mittens with their thumbs facing inwards. So they came to their names. The Mittens are about 1900 m high and together with the Merrick Butte form a triangle. This triple formation is a world-famous panorama that has already been used as a backdrop by numerous films, music videos and commercials.
