Destination 1:The Mittens
We’ll meet 30 minutes before tour time at the View Hotel or in the parking lot of the Tribal Park Visitors Center. Then we’ll drive to The Mittens. Also known as the West & East Mitten Buttes. When viewed from the south, the buttes appear to be two gigantic mittens with their thumbs facing inwards.

Destination 2:John Ford's Point
Film director John Ford used Monument Valley as a location for many Western Hollywood movies between 1939 and 1960, and one site that featured often is now known as John Ford’s Point. A plateau overlooking a large area of Monument Valley’s desert land.

Destination 3:Rain God Mesa
Rain God Mesa is beautiful during the evening. It towers over Monument Valley’s desert land and with other towers nearby it looks like a fortress. The Navajo have farmed the sandy soils around Rain God Mesa for centuries, bringing sustenance of the good earth to the people.

Destination 4:Thunderbird Mesa
Across from Rain God Mesa is the Thunderbird mesa. Another tower-like fortress it’s filled with desert sand. If it looks familiar it’s because it’s seen in classic Western movies and many brochures.

Destination 5:Navajo Hogan Visit
The Hogan is a sacred dwelling, a shelter. Hogans are used primarily for ceremonial purposes, but some Navajo families have begun to use them as lodging. When you visit, the Navajo are going to demonstrate how to make a traditional Navajo rug.

Destination 6:Big Hogan Arch & Mocassin Arch
Located near each other Big Hogan Arch is considered to be a cave natural arch. While the Mocassin Arch is considered a pothole natural arch. Both arches are eroded in DeChelly sandstone.

Destination 7:Sun's Eye & Ear of the Wind
The Sun’s Eye also known as, Eye of the Sun, is a cave type arch eroded in DeChelly sandstone. Below it is a 700-year-old Anasazi petroglyph and carvings. Ear of the Wind is filled with sand and with a yell, you can talk to the world.

Destination 8:Totem Pole
The Totem Pole is a pillar or rock spire that was once a wide butte. The spire is just one of the many striking rock formations in the valley named by non-Natives.

Destination 9:Artist Point
It’s perhaps the second best overlook and a really peaceful place. Ahead are many miles of flat land punctuated by the familiar peaks of West Mitten Butte, Merrick Butte, and East Mitten Butte.

Destination 10:North Window
The North Window is a gap between the edges of Elephant Butte and Cly Butte which frames East Mitten Butte. The Mittens looks different from this angle as the distinctive spire on its north side is not in view. It’s one of the most visited viewpoints
