Monument Valley and the Navajo Tribes

Written by Nadine Zangerle on . Posted in USA

Where the earth meets the sky, this is the home of the Navajo tribes. The Colorado Plateau covers geological wonders, so we travelled through the hidden valley, following John Wayne’s footsteps.

The valley drive is a 17 mile unpaved dirt road. So we left our 5th wheel at the parking lot and enjoyed the bumpy ride.

Our truck was covered in red sand after this adventurous trip and we where happy to have a high clearance. With those nice pot holes they have to drag out a few cars every day.

Good to have a 4 wheel drive even if we did 1600 km (1000 miles) dirt road in Australia with a 2 wheel drive.
