As a great travel enthusiast who likes to blog about his traveling experience, Ammon Cunningham is highly regarded for his ability to articulate just what a great travel experience. However, there is a lot more to his writing than that. He feels a duty to his home state of Utah, which is why he lets the travelers who read his blog know that his home state features many of the most impressive travel destinations anywhere. Among Ammon Cunningham’s favorite travel destinations is Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.
Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is part of the Navajo Nation, which covers an area of more than 27,000 square miles and touches parts of three states. However, most of Monument Valley is in Utah. One reason Ammon Cunningham believes this is a great tourist destination is because many people have already seen it, although they may not remember when or how. You see, Monument Valley is highly recognizable due to the fact that its most beautiful natural features have been featured in many films and commercials over the course of the last century. The phenomenal red mesas, buttes, and the surrounding desert have been seen by people all over the world. As great as they look on TV, however, you haven’t seen them until you stand there and look up.
Ammon Cunningham is particularly fond of the Valley Drive, which is a 17-mile dirt road that winds through the most scenic areas of the park. Travelers can venture off Valley Drive, but only with a guide, since it is located in the middle of a desert. Thankfully, arranging for a guide is very easy. Arrangements can be made through the Monument Valley Visitor Center, conveniently located near the park entrance. The visitors center should be seen anyway, because it features beautiful vistas, too.
