Utah / Arizona ~ March 29-30, 2007

    The famous buttes, mesas, and spires, including the oft-photographed "Mittens," are the result of uplift followed by erosion. Monument Valley is but the best-known example of this type of formation. About 30 miles to the north, in Utah, is the Valley of the Gods, which can be accessed easily by typical 2-wheel drive rental cars over an 18-mile loop road. Monument Valley offers a campsite at the edge of the cliff overlooking the Mittens, and the public can traverse a loop road through the valley floor. Native American tour operators can also take you to other areas of Monument Valley that are typically closed to visitors traveling on their own.
