The Stunning Landscape Of Monument Valley Captured On A Beautiful Acrylic Fridge Magnet
Monument Valley is one of the most famous sights in the United States of America. Its vast size and majestic beauty make it truly spectacular as can be seen on this lovely acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. The Valley is not what would traditionally be regarded as a valley but rather a vast deserted landscape with rocky formations interspersing it. These formations are the remnants of the vast layers of sandstone which once covered the whole area. Rising to heights of hundreds of feet they make for a spectacular view. Our acrylic fridge magnet pictures the Monument Valley looking out over its amazing panorama.
The Landscape And Sights Of Monument Valley In Arizona
Most of the main sights of Monument Valley are clustered around Arizona's border with Utah and around the settlement of Goulding which was originally set up as a trading post in 1923 and now provides basic services for visitors. Although many of the sights within the Valley can be seen from the main roadway the best way to really appreciate the details of its splendour, and to see the entire Navajo Tribal Park, is via Valley Drive, a seventeen mile dirt track which winds from the visitor centre through the rocky formations. Except when it becomes muddy, when it can become difficult, the track is relatively easy to travel in a normal car. Accommodation, for those who want to stay at Monument Valley, is somewhat expensive and consists of just two places, Gouldings Lodge and The View Hotel. A further hotel, and one often used by travellers, is available in the town of Kayenta, twenty three miles away. Wherever visitors stay the sights of Monument Valley provide a spectacular venue as can be seen from the picture on our acrylic fridge magnet.
