Scenic drive to the Little Colorado River Canyon Overlook near where the Little Colorado River and Colorado River merge into the Grand Canyon. Stretch your legs at the open-air Navajo Indian marketplace.
On to the east-end of the Grand Canyon which many believe has the best views of the Canyon. Stop at Desert View Lookout and the historic Watch Tower. Climb the tower and absorb the incredible views across the Canyon with the Colorado River below.
A short drive to Navajo Point where the views are even more astounding with sight of Comanche Point, canyon walls to the north and the snaking Colorado River. Photo-taking opportunities galore.
On to Monument Valley through Tuba City, the main town on the Navajo Indian Reservation. A brief stop before continuing on to Monument Valley and the first views of red buttes and monoliths that rise 400 to 1200 feet above the valley floor.
We proceed to Goulding’s Lodge and Navajo Trading Post. Have an authentic lunch of Indian Fry Bread Tacos (on your own). Visit the Native Navajo open-air markets and gaze at the incredible Monument views from this historic place. Complimentary breakfast from our Wildflower menu and a fruit platter to enjoy on the journey in the valley or back home.
Head to the Navajo Indian Park Monument Valley Visitors Center, the heart of the 39,000 acres of Monument Valley. The Silver Spur Guide will drive you to some of the more view points of buttes, monoliths, spires, and mesas.
Your day trip tour return will take you back through Flagstaff, Arizona and the descent into Oak Creek Canyon and your point of lodging in Sedona AZ.
The Navajos, to whom the Monument Valley territory belongs, have a prayer that runs, in part…….
“In beauty may you walk.
With beauty before you may you walk.
With beauty behind you may you walk.
With beauty above you may you walk.
With beauty below you may you walk.
With beauty all around you may you walk.”
