Monument Valley is located on the southern border of Utah with northern Arizona.
The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation.
The Navajo name for the valley is Tsé Bii’ Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks)
The area is part of the Colorado Plateau. The floor is largely Cutler Red siltstone or its sand deposited by the meandering rivers that carved the valley. The valley’s vivid red color comes from iron oxide exposed in the weathered siltstone.
