Monument Valley is located on the Navajo Indian Reservation and covers over 100,000 acres combined on the borders of both Arizona and Utah. The iconic attraction of red rock spires, monoliths, buttes, and mesas tower 400 to 1200 feet. Monument Valley is the sacred land of the Navajo Nation where Navajos still practice traditions and cultures of past centuries. Many movies have been filmed at Monument Valley including Forrest Gump in the spot where he completed his famous run and returned home. Silver Spur Tours will take you there in VIP style in the touring comfort of a Mercedes Benz built, customized Sprinter Van.
