Monument Valley is situated on the border of the North American states of Arizona and Utah, in a region of magnificent freestanding sandstone rocks that tower 1,000 feet above the desert.
More than 200 million years ago, the area was covered by ocean. On the bed were deep deposits of mud, which turned into slate and as the sea bed rose again, the water drained away and cracks and fissures were formed and a vast sandstone plain was created.
In the heart of the Navajo Reservation, with its magical rock formations which in the evening sun glow a burning, indelible red, itís easy to understand why nature played such an important part in the lives of its native inhabitants. A sacred atmosphere can be felt everywhere and the existence of ghosts is suddenly all too possible.
