Monument Valley (166,869 bytes) ( 1,145 x 685 )
Monument Valley is located on the southern border of Utah with northern Arizona, within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation. The Navajo name for the valley is Tse Bii' Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks). The movie industry has made extensive use of the monument for filming westerns, including Stagecoach with John Wayne, parts of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Indian Jones. This 3-D perspective was created by draping ASTER image data (acquired April 18, 2002) over digital elevation data from the U.S. Geological Survey National Elevation Dataset. The view is centered near 36.8 degrees north latitude, 110.3 degrees west longitude.
