Monument Valley (AZ, UT)
The Roads: You'll feel like you stepped into a John Ford western when you saddle up on these long stretches of lonely highway that cut through the sandstone buttes of the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The most recognizable section is the 17-mile Valley Drive loop.
Stay: The View Hotel is a good place to start, as its title refers to the fact that every room faces The Mittens, Monument Valley's most famous formation.
Inside Tip: Nearby natural features include the Valley of the Gods, Cedar Mesa, and the Highway 163 Scenic Drive, a 45-mile long scenic byway. Bring your hiking shoes and take in some of the most grandiose natural sights this side of the Mississippi.
