MONUMENT VALLEY – I thought I knew Monument Valley. I’d seen the Westerns that John Ford shot here, as well as the Isuzu car commercials. I’d read the books and devoured the documentaries. I knew that John Wayne had referred to this remote region of Navajo country as the place “where God put the West.”

The argument could be made that, from 1939’s Stagecoach through Cheyenne Autumn in 1964, those magnificent seven, which also include My Darling Clementine (1946), Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), The Searchers (1956) and Sergeant Rutledge (1960), created the 20th century’s image of the heroic, romantic West.

To see Ford’s Monument Valley Westerns is to see breathtaking scenery, what one guide vividly describes as “great mesas, buttes, sandstone pinnacles, spires, fins and arches, all monuments to 500 million years of giant earth uplifts and the perpetual forces of erosion,” not merely photographed but raised to the level of iconography

Despite its pedigree and its knockout beauty, it gets relatively few tourists: 500,000 a year, compared with the estimated 5 million for the Grand Canyon. And most of those tourists are from overseas. Top honors go to German tourists, followed by the French, Japanese, Italians and Americans.
