Monument Valley
(30)
This was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in all my travels. It's a must if you're traveling through the American West and has been the backdrop for numerous Westerns. I would recommend opting for a powerful SUV or 4-wheel drive rather than your own car since the roads can be pretty rough. You can also book a tour with a local Navajo guide once you arrive. I'd suggest getting the guide since they can take you to places that are blocked to normal visitors. One nearby hotel "The View" was spectacular and had amazing views of the valley, but you need to make your reservations about a year ahead of time, especially if you're going in the peak season. The rest of the hotels aren't anything special. This is a place you'll remember for the rest of your life.

The Three Sisters
The name 'The Three Sisters' refers to the sisters of the Catholic Church that, according to the Indians, would give lessons to pupils. You can see them if you take a car or jeep into the Navajo reservation. This is one of the easiest rock formations to distinguish because you can really see three different peaks.
