It’s amazing how much the scenery can change when travelling around some parts of the US. We headed out from the Grand Canyon National Park after having a lazy start to the day and headed for Monument Valley.
This meant that we needed to backtrack about 110KM or so to the turn of to Tuba City. We booked our stay in Monument Valley at “The View Hotel” and I have to say that it is probably the #1 stop we’ve had so far.
The view from the hotel is spectacular and all the rooms face outwards towards the monuments. We took a heap of photos that I am hoping to stitch together into panoramic shots once we get back. The photos that we took in the evening were best because sun was in the west and was lighting up the structures for us.
The hotel itself is in Navajo territory and you have to pay a fee to get into the tribal park, but I would say that the view from here is probably the best from anywhere else.
