For nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons – longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock, and farm the lands in the canyon. The National Park Service and Navajo Nation actively work together to manage park resources.

Monument Valley

Haven’t visited since 2006. Almost did last year with my trip out west but didn’t have the time. Still one of my top ten favorite places. Whenever a John Ford movie or a commercial is on TV and it’s filmed in Monument Valley, I have to stop what I’m doing and watch.

Heaven on Earth

A panorama view of Monument Valley

This morning on the television show “CBS This Morning”
the topic was Hollywood and the movies.
The reason is today is Oscar Night.

One segment was a story about Monument Valley
and it’s place in Hollywood history.
I agree with a comment that described the location
as “Heaven on Earth”.
